This quiz, designed for fifth and sixth graders, addresses different ideas surrounding body image in a fun way (French only). The 15 questions it contains will introduce them to the importance of having a positive body image and the factors that influence it.
Why talk about body image at school?
Children can start to become concerned about their appearance very early on, which sometimes causes them to place too much importance on their body type. The Sexuality Education program suggests addressing the subject of body image with fifth and sixth graders. This 15-question quiz can serve as an introduction before addressing the subject in class or be used in conjunction with other activities on the subject.

Get inspired by the Tu est parfait-e activity, where students were asked to make a collage that represents their dream body. Afterwards, they showed their projects to their parents!
