Lesson Plans, 2020
For use in conjunction with the Your Choices Matter Video and Facilitator’s Guide, the Your Choices Matter Lesson Plans are a way to take the discussion of infant mortality and health behaviours a step further. Each lesson addresses common risk factors for infant mortality and can help guide discussion about the impact of these risk factors for youth today and in the future, and for their future children. Each lesson has been linked to the Saskatchewan Curriculum and, where applicable, includes marking rubrics.
The Facilitator’s Guide and Lesson Plans can be used to engage youth and communities to have conversations about health and behaviour choices that they are making today to ensure the best health outcomes for themselves and their future children. The Guide provides background information and several lesson plans, which can be used in the classroom or in a group setting, to address the various topics introduced in the video.
Making Sense of Play
In this two-hour seminar, Dr. Gordon Neufeld explores what play is, the benefits of play, and what is needed for children to play. Dr. Neufeld explains that play is not an option; it is a developmental requirement. Through various examples, he explores the three basic tenants of play: 1) Play is not work, 2) Play is expressive and exploratory, and 3) Play is “not for real”.

SKU: 8-V-810Hold onto Your Kids
This DVD explores the importance of attachment in the development of children. In some cases, these relationships do not last for the length of time that children are still maturing. Often times, children turn their attachment relationship from caregivers to peers. However, peer relationships do not have the same benefits for the child as those with caregivers.
