Product Description
Diseases Lessons - ★Get This Informative Communicable + Non-Communicable Unit!

This Health unit will make teaching about diseases engaging and impacting! Students LOVE both the Communicable and Non-Communicable lessons and CARD GAMES!

Each lesson lists the State, National and Common Core Standards met.


This product has everything you need to inform your students about transmission, symptoms, prevention, and treatment of many diseases. Includes my two fun "Communicable" and "Non-Communicable Diseases Card Games!"

This unit was taken from my “High School Health Curriculum,” the #1 best-selling Health curriculum on the whole TeachersPayTeachers website!


Do you want your students to be more engaged, be empowered to make healthy choices, and also love your Health class? Read on…


Here is what sets this curriculum apart from others:

• Will this program be easy to teach? Yes! It’s not just a unit outline. 89 pages of highly organized step-by-step teacher directions follow a 81-Slide PowerPoint, and the directions tell you exactly to say and do!!

• Will the program meet standards? Yes, this program meets 12 Common Core Standards, 35 National Health Standard indicators, and 12 of my Washington State Health Standards. The curriculum also meets 4 of the New York Department of Education Commencement Health Standards, so it’s very likely to meet YOUR state’s Health Education standards as well!

• Is this program researched-based? Yes, in this curriculum you will find health goals and behavioral outcomes that are research-based and theory-driven.

• Should I buy this program or one created by a curriculum company? Why buy lessons designed by people who've possibly never taught in a classroom when you can get lessons from a teacher with a National Board Certification in Health and 19 years of experience teaching 9th grade Health? This curriculum is fun, interactive, and has engaging lessons, and it's amazingly more affordable than ones created by publishing companies!

• Will the lessons be effective for my students? Yes! Lessons are concise, interesting, interactive and engaging.

• What if I need to change a lesson? No problem! Documents and PowerPoints are editable and docs are included in both Word and PDF formats.

• Will my students like this program? Students love this program, and students who like what they’re learning are more likely to choose to actually use what they learned outside the classroom.
