Health is typically defined differently from person to
person.Children normally think that if
you are not sick, you’re healthy.It is
important for children to understand all the aspects of health and to realize
how our actions can be unhealthy.
This lesson will help students look at some of the myths about health and
hopefully change the way they define health.
After the content of the lesson has been presented,
there are three activities.The first
two activities, What is health? and Stairway to Health are relatively simple
to conduct.The Learning Activity Extension,
Health Concept Map, is slightly more
difficult to facilitate.The decision to
implement this activity should be left to the discretion of the program
