3rd Grade Health
The 3rd Grade Health course builds on the knowledge and skills learned in the second grade. In this course, the student acquires the health information and skills necessary to become healthy adults and learn about behaviors in which they should and should not participate. Skills are taught in seeking guidance in the area of health from parents, how personal behaviors can increase or reduce health risks throughout the lifespan, how health is influenced in a variety of factors, and how to recognize health information and products. Beyond physical health, this course helps students learn the personal/interpersonal skills needed to promote individual, family, and community health. Several projects help the student expand health thinking and practice skills learned in the course.
