This lesson was originally designed as part of the Project School Wellness Curriculum. Project School Wellness’ approach to health is not your everyday health curriculum. We go beyond the old school physical health only approach to teaching health. We’re not focused on getting every kid to run faster miles and memorize dietary guidelines (not that those are bad goals). Oh no, we’ve got our dreams set on something much bigger – empowering every student to thrive!


And at Project School Wellness we understand that thriving doesn’t come from just being physically healthy!  You see, we wholehearted believe that health is multidimensional and that the dimensions are interconnected! This means that students must understand and learn how to strengthen and sustain each dimension of health (Not. Just. Physical. Health.).
