Good Health From the Ground Up

Lesson Plan

There’s nothing like digging down in the dirt, tending a seedling, and watching a tiny veggie grow to get kids excited about vegetables. Children’s gardens run by schools and Master Gardeners around San Antonio witness this at every harvest. In this segment we’ll see how these “down to earth” projects turned some children into seriously healthy eaters.


I Don't Ever Want to Smoke!
View this Vignette

Lesson Plan

Most smokers began smoking as pre-teens. As with other cancers, the long-term risks of lung cancer rarely factor into their desire to quit or not start. The immediate effects--bad smell, bad breath, yellow teeth--have a stronger impact. This vignette finds kids who think cigarette smoking is so “yucky” and “gross” they wouldn’t even consider starting. The focus is on the children’s reactions to smoking, in their own words.


That's Exercise?

Lesson Plan

Flipping a friend through the air, riding a horse that dances, running an obstacle course with your dog. Exercise isn’t only about walking around the block. This vignette follows kids who do unusual and unique kinds of exercise, many of which combine art, music and culture to make it even more interesting. Kids who do capoeira (Brazilian martial arts/dance), practice agility training with their dog, girls called “escaramuzas” who ride horseback at Mexican rodeos, and kids who love Aikido, a Japanese martial art, are featured.
