Health Education Curriculum

Health check

Teaching health education without a formal curriculum is not as difficult as it sounds. Your local library and the internet can provide almost all the information you'd need to teach each of the ten basic content areas.

Here are some resources and teaching suggestions for the first four content areas. This post is part one of two health education resource lists that I'll be posting. I'll also be adding to each list as I find more resources. If you have any suggestions for additional resources for each area, please leave a comment.

Think Safety

Accident Prevention and Safety

Community Health

  • Find out about the community health programs in your county/state. Information about programs in my own state of Texas can be found here at the Texas Department of State Health Services website. Your state will likely have similar information.
  • Read this article about how food banks work.
  • Read about the American Heart Association, the Muscular Dystrophy Association, etc. Find out why and how these organizations operate.
  • Field trip ideas:
    • Locate your local food banks, plan a field trip to one, and make a donation of food.
    • Locate local homeless shelters. Visit one (maybe even volunteer) to find our first-hand how they operate. Before you visit, ask what material needs they have and take a donation.

Consumer Health

Environmental Health

This is just part one of the homeschool health education curriculum so watch for part 2.

    Perfect! Thanks for this post! I have been biting my nails trying to decide on a Health 'curriculum' and your words "without a a formal curriculum is not as difficult as it sounds" is what I needed to hear :)

    Thanks for posting! My 10th grader has finished her health curriculum from the publisher we use but I wanted something to touch up on instead of her just "skipping" these last 2 years of health. Great start for me to use! I greatly appreciate it!

    I cannot tell you what a blessing this site was to me today. I am rushing to cram our 0.5 credit for health this year and with your site I was given ideas to achieve our goal. I am not really impressed with many of the standard Health curriculums but with these resources I can pick and chose PER TOPIC. Thank you from a weary mother! 😉
