Topics:

6th Grade:

Puberty/Hygiene (Quarter 3): We will be studying the changes of puberty that usually begin about this time in students' lives (puberty can begin as early as age 8 or 9). Our coursework will involve identifying and discussing the physical, emotional, and social changes that typically occur as a result of the hormone changes taking place. Moreover, due to hormonal changes to adolescents during puberty there is an increased need for good hygiene habits. This area of study is part of the National Health Education Standards recommendations for topics and skills to be covered in classroom health education.

HIV/AIDS (Quarter 4): HIV/AIDS is one of the most serious health problems Americans have ever faced. Advances in medicine have made tremendous strides in keeping people infected with HIV healthy for many years. Still, it has no cure, and education is the only way we can help our students protect themselves from becoming infected.

7th Grade:

Physical Activity/Fitness (Quarter 1): Physical activity is defined as body movement produced by the skeletal muscles that result in energy expenditure. It is a crucial component of a healthy lifestyle. In fact, physical inactivity has been proven to be amajor risk factor in the development of coronary artery disease. In addition, physical inactivity has been linked to other risk factors such as obesity, cancer, diabetes and high blood pressure.

HIV/AIDS (Quarter 2): HIV/AIDS is one of the most serious health problems Americans have ever faced. Advances in medicine have made tremendous strides in keeping people infected with HIV healthy for many years. Still, it has no cure, and education is the only way we can help our students protect themselves from becoming infected.

8th Grade:

Drugs, Alcohol, Tobacco (Quarter 3): In-class demonstrations help students learn how tobacco harms the body and a web-based research project helps students learn how to access valid sources of information about the negative affects of tobacco

HIV/AIDS (Quarter 4): HIV/AIDS is one of the most serious health problems Americans have ever faced.
