Lesson Plans by Patrick Healey

When thinking about a person’s health and wellness, we tend to think of only physical health. While physical health is important, there are four other vital aspects to consider: social, spiritual, intellectual, and emotional. These all fall under the umbrella term of "wellness". If one of these aspects is overlooked, there can be long term impacts that impede student development. The following activities will address, simulate, and analyze personal wellness. Some of your students may either be struggling with sensitive or traumatic issues. Approaching this unit with delicacy, sensitivity, and professionalism is important.
