    Ophea Open Class

    Ophea is learning with you with Ophea Open Class!

    Units 1-3 include recorded demonstration videos with a different lesson, game, or activity from Ophea; highlighting curriculum expectations, learning goals, safety requirements, equipment, and success criteria for primary, junior, and intermediate learners.

    Unit 4 includes a Welcome Back Choice Board to provide meaningful, safe, engaging quality Health and Physical Education and health promoting opportunities during class time and to support physical activity opportunities before, throughout, and after the school day with consideration to the Government of Ontario’s Guide to Reopening Ontario’s Schools.
