Alex the Alligator

Alex the Alligator is a plush alligator and resource kit developed to support oral health and healthy eating within the Ontario Health & Physical Education curriculum. We work with elementary schools to engage students in leading Alex the Alligator activities with classrooms or at school events. This provides opportunities for students to develop leadership and communication skills, and fosters school connectedness. 
This resource supports the Healthy Living Strand of the Ontario Health and Physical Education Curriculum by addressing expectations under the topic of Human Development and Sexual Health related to oral health.  When combined with other strategies that promote student well-being, Alex the Alligator can contribute to comprehensively addressing other topics such as healthy eating, equity and inclusion, and oral health.

To access Alex the Alligator and to have more discussion about offering an integrated approach to supporting student well-being in your school, contact your the School Health program.
