Health and Physical Education Distance Learning Web Assignment on Stress
- Easel Activity
Designed by the 2019 SHAPE America National High School Physical Education Teacher of the Year, this remote learning tool introduces students to reputable organizations and websites where they can learn about important health concepts. It has been said "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime" These assignments guide students in exploring websites they can refer back to in the future when they have questions about wellness topics. Students explore the sites, read information or watch videos, then answer questions to check for understanding. Students are also often prompted to apply new learning to real life situations. This web assignment helps students learn about stress, some strategies to reduce stress and gives them a chance to plan for ways to minimize stress in their own lives.
This tool has been formatted as a digital activity and can be assigned to students in the Google Classroom.
Each web assignment helps students learn state and national health and physical education standards.
*Web assignments are intended for high school students age 13 and up.

· The web assignments can be sent home with students as homework. The day they are due and returned, the teacher can facilitate a brief discussion about the website students explored and the learning that occurred.
