Health Education I (7-8)
It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver. – Mahatma Gandhi
Health education provides opportunities for students to develop knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary for practicing lifelong, health-enhancing behaviors. The Health I curriculum focuses on what students can do for themselves to meet the objectives of the six state core standards. Students will learn that they are responsible for their personal well-being and that building a solid foundation of health literacy and decision-making skills can contribute to a variety of healthy choices for self and others that will be of value throughout life.
Consumer health (e.g., evaluating the reliability of health information, identifying and assessing health resources and health care providers, and understanding media messages in advertising) is important and should be taught throughout the core.
Core Standards of the Course
