Free health education kits now available at Region of Waterloo libraries1 min readReading Time: < 1 minute
Anyone with a library card can now access fun, free educational health activities through the Region of Waterloo Library.
These education resource kits are provided by the Region’s Public Health team. The kits are excellent tools for teachers, caregivers and parents to deliver lessons specific to a variety of health topics. About 30 different options available. Many include games, models, and ideas for activities.
Kits include an “infant simulator,” “A Superhero’s Guide to Health,” activities to teach sun safety, and a radon gas detector. Others have hands-on tools to help with healthy eating or exercise. Classrooms, summer camps or youth groups can use fun parachute or rubber chicken activities to encourage physical activity.
The resource kits can be reserved through the library’s online catalogue or through the Ask a Librarian service.
Anyone with a free Region of Waterloo Library card can request a kit. Once requested, it usually takes three to seven days for the kit to arrive at your pick-up location. You’ll get a notification when it’s ready.
Educational Resource Kits can be picked up from any Region of Waterloo Library branch, or from 99 Regina Street South in Waterloo or 150 Main Street in Cambridge.
