Salmon Arm chiropractors hold body movement class and games for Unplug and Play

Children learned about muscles and bones, played and received free books

As part of Unplug and Play Family Literacy Week, children learned about the muscles and bones that make up their body and played some movement games to jump start learning about healthy activity.

At Active Chiropractic in Salmon Arm, children and parents were invited to take part in an anatomy and movement activity lesson. Chiropractors Jake Deeble and Jourdyne Mason led a lesson about bones, muscles and joints and then helped children play movement-focused activities at the Active Chiropractic office.

Literacy Alliance members were also there, giving out a free book to each child after the event.

Unplug and Play week encourages families to step away from screens and take part in activities, indoors and outdoors, that move the body and stimulate the mind. Activities are planned all this week until Sunday, January 29.
