In the contemporary climate of public education, designing a health education curriculum often requires a creative integration of fitness and science education into other subject and content areas. It may seem like there is no time for health education amidst rising standards, fixed curriculum, mandated content. However, we can teach important health lessons through the books we choose to read, the way we organize our classroom community, integrating active movement into our activities, writing stories or poems that relate to health and fitness or which require physical movement. Health education does not have to require more time or a redistribution of our use of time; health education requires us to be more conscious and calculated in how we use that time towards positive health goals.
Teaching is Integrating.
