What Does it Mean to Be Healthy?
Project Based Learning for Health Class
This is a two-week group-based project I use to introduce my Health unit on making healthy life choices. For this project, students are asked to research and come up with an answer (or answers) to the question, "What does it mean to be healthy?" Their specific topic and method of delivering the information is left open-ended, to encourage students to take more ownership over their projects.
