Learn To Be Healthy - Free Lesson Plans

Learn to be Healthy offers free high quality health education lesson plans for elementary school, middle school, and high school teachers to use in their classrooms. The lesson plans cover topics in nutrition, exercise, dental care, mental health, and the dangers of drug use. The lesson plans include the use of online interactive activities and offline in-class activities with reproducible hand-outs.

Applications for Education
What I really like about the lesson plans on Learn to be Healthy is that there is a good mix of online activities and offline in-class activities. This mix gives students the chance to explore and learn on their own as well as providing students with a chance to interact with their teacher and classmates.
