Most of the time when Health is mentioned, students think about physical health and well being (exercise and diet). Mental and social health is often overlooked or forgotten yet it is such a vital part of their daily life for it forms relations and attitudes. Both great assets for life in they are well developed.
I have created activities that look at the whole (physical, mental and social). I have omitted spiritual (religious) well-being as state schools are not allowed to teach about it without parental permission, but if you teach in a religious school please do consider talking about spiritual health as well.
Using Blooms Taxonomy Framework, this resource will enable you to use it as a tool for higher order thinking and build upon the work that you have taught them about the subject. Staring with basic skills such as knowledge and understanding, students then will be challenged to apply facts that they learnt and apply it in creative ways.
For example, one task is to propose a new school program that targets social skills. Students will need to compile their knowledge about social health and social strategies to create a program. This is a very real world application of their knowledge.
It is great to be used as an independent task or a homework extension for students that need an extra challenge. In the classroom, I do not expect the students to complete an entire column before moving on but like them to complete at least 3 before advancing to the next skill set.
As a heads up, some of these activities will prove to be of more value when completed together as a whole class, and therefore you may want to select those activities and use them as class competitions or whole class learning experiences.
