This file is a power point that contains information about Health – Topic covered is “what is Health.” This is a good lesson to open up with when discussing the subject health and what it means at the beginning a school year. It allows the students to become more familiar with what the topic is about and why they are taking the class along with its importance. This lesson/activity power point is geared towards the 7th grade students, but can be modified to older or younger students based upon your own creativity or knowledge of the subject matter. In the slide show it talks about ways to be healthy and how to be healthy. It shows the influences of health using media sources and skills to better your health. There are also headings that discuss 10 skills on bettering your own health. Things such as stress management, communication skills, decision making, and conflict/resolution are just a few to name. At the end of the powerpoint there is a 10 point quiz on building health skills that the students can do by looking at the powerpoint and numbering their papers 1-10 to answer (using a word bank). It also has a short quiz of 10 points on the material covered in the first half of class that the students can do using the slideshow and a blank piece of paper. The powerpoint will show the health and wellness pyramid and triangle. The powerpoint will make it easy for the students to follow along with because it will show diagrams and pictures. This file only contains 32 slides but can be a great way to introduce the subject and/or class. It will have a 10 point quiz that the students can take at their desks while showing the power point (all they need is paper and pencil). This is good to recall information throughout the class period. If you are looking for a lesson/activity on what is health-look no further. It’s simple to the point and can help get the importance across to your students. You can go as far as using this for a whole lesson or a half of class depending on how in depth you want to go with the subject matter. Enjoy!
