Health Study 2009-2010

Health StudyI had ordered a Health and Safety curriculum online, but it was not what I expected. I returned it and have just put something together with my old PE book printed in 1989 and online resources.

I have 20 minutes a week scheduled for health, but that may vary slightly depending on the activity.
The PE book is still being printed, but the page numbers used are from the 1989 edition called Lifetime Physical Fitness and Wellness. The book is not for my kids level so when I refer to page numbers it is for me to read and explain the concepts presented in the book.
I’ve listed several websites. Some are for me to view and explain to my children and others are for us to explore together.
