Health – High School
Healthy habits that start in the teen years can last a lifetime. This is more than a course. High School Health is a blueprint so teens can understand how God created their bodies and how to keep them working optimally for the rest of their lives.
Health will cover basic anatomy, nutrition, exercise, safety, personal hygiene, relationships, communication, addictions, bullying, integrity, work, technology wisdom, and emotions will all be covered in this course. Students will complete projects to put into practice what they are learning, such as making an exercise plan or creating a poster to discourage smoking.
Students will learn that they have the autonomy to make personal health choices, but those decisions have consequences. Students are encouraged to take personal responsibility for their health in a proactive way.
Students will read the work text and answer questions at home for each health topic. We will discuss topics, watch videos, role-play, and explore health issues in class.
Students will complete
