Fact Sheets


The University of Calgary has produced a number of teaching tools and facts sheets which can be found here.

Screen Smart!

Screen Smart! is a classroom-based program for teachers and health professionals who work in schools settings. This initiative is designed to make students from kindergarten to grade 6 aware of how much time they spend in front of screens while encouraging them to choose healthy physical or recreational activities.

The program offers teachers with interactive, in-class activities for 5 to 10 days, encouraging students to participate in the Ultimate Screen Challenge. All family members are invited to participate.  Click here to find the program in French or English.
