Our Living Healthy lesson plan teaches students how to live a healthier life in terms of their physical, mental, and emotional health and wellness. During this lesson, students are asked to work with a partner to create a poster about healthy living, including specific tips to live more effectively physically, emotionally, and mentally, mottos, sayings, and quotes that will inspire people to live healthily, pictures and graphs, and more. Students are also asked to read various scenarios and circle the most likely physical, emotional, or mental concern or consequence related to each scenario.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify strategies for living healthy related to physical, mental, and emotional well-being and will be able to identify the difference between physical, emotional, and mental health and how they are connected.
