Free Health Lesson Plans, Quizzes, and Educational Games

Yesterday's post about health and fitness apps for students prompted one reader to ask for health and fitness lesson plan resources. The first resource that came to my mind was Kids Health in the Classroom.

Kids Health in the Classroom is a great place to find lesson plans, videos, and games for teaching personal health topics to students of all ages. For teachers the biggest feature of Kids Health in the Classroom is the large set of teacher's guides containing lesson plans, activities, and worksheets available as free PDF downloads. The teacher's guides are divided into five grade level categories from pre-K through high school. Above the pre-K level the guides are divided into three categories; human body, health problems, and personal health.

Kids Health in the Classroom hosts The Game Closet containing games, movies, quizzes, and activities for learning about topics in health. The contents of The Game Closet has a section for teenagers and a section for younger students.

Applications for Education
If teaching personal health lessons is a part of your teaching responsibilities, Kids Health in the Classroom could be a great resource for you to bookmark. The Game Closet could provide some individual activities that your students can do to reinforce the ideas that you teach in your classroom.
