General Electives Course for Grades 7, 8
The body that God has given to each one of us is an amazing creation that is fearfully and wonderfully made in a marvelous manner. As caretakers of His gift to us, it is important to know how to care for our bodies in the proper way. Middle School Health assists the students as they take up this task and responsibility. Through well-crafted lessons, students learn many aspects involved in being healthy.
In this class, students walk through learning about the body in a basic manner which sets the foundation for the rest of the class. After gaining that basic information, students learn how to care for their body by what they eat and how they take care of themselves through nutrition and hygiene.
Our minds are an important part of our overall health which is highlighted in the unit focusing on social and mental health. The importance of a strong spiritual life and close walk with God plays a critical role in this. Physical health and staying safe round out the curriculum by focusing on exercise and the activities that keep a body healthy, along with ways we can stay safe and protect ourselves in this world in which we live. If you are interested in all aspects of being healthy, then this is the class for you!
