30 Second PSA is designed to be a way to assess students on what was learned during their time in Health Class. Students must put together a 30 second public service announcement about a topic covered in class and may work with another student to do so. Topics are chosen by having a class discussion about what was covered over the course of the quarter/semester/etc. Students can use any means they choose to demonstrate their knowledge (video, presentation, rap/poetry, skit, etc.) but it needs to be sussinct and to the point.
Lesson activity will provide learning activity for a lead-up hockey skill (Striking, long implement). Offensive and defensive strategy, teamwork and sportsmanship are also an important aspect of the lesson.
Students will learn about the 5 Languages of Love and the definitions of all of them. They will then "guess" which one is their primary language. After "guessing" they will take a self-assessment and find out what their primary love language is. We will then discuss what they can do with this information.
We used first and last names. Every letter is an activity. You could spell answers to review questions, random questions, or vocab words. Possibilities are endless! Work individually or as a group. Make it fit for your curriculum and environment.
150 low- and high-fidelity simulations and serious games scenarios created for Nursing, Respiratory Therapy, EMT-Paramedic, Medical Assistant and Pharmacy Technician programs. Nursing scenarios are aligned with WTCS Statewide Nursing Curriculum. Simulation documents can be used as standalone scenarios or as augmented reality scenarios using the free, open source iOS "ARIS" app on iPads.

This source is a short youtube video designed to show students the effects of an aging population on the healthcare system, and how if the healthcare system runs poorly, this older population will fall behind in terms of their health and wellness. I'd like for the students to watch the video in its entirety and then share their thoughts on why the aging population presents a problem for health providers, and then 1 thing the health care system can do to improve patient care for people aged 65 and older. The key takeaways I'd like the students to understand is that our population is growing older year by year, and this creates a unique set of challenges for our healthcare system.
This website by the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health teaches students about alternative health practices. The website breaks down alternative health practices into 4 broad categories - nutritional, psychological, physical, and other. Then, it provides specific examples of alternative health practices in each category. By clicking on the specific example, the website redirects you to a page that defines and describes that practice in more detail. This website is great because it provides diagrams; charts; embedded links to additional information; general alternative health practices; and alternative health practices specific to groups like military personnel, cancer patients, and cancer survivors. As an interactive activity, students can separate into small groups. Each member can research a specific alternative health practice like massage therapy, acupuncture, or meditation. After a brief time window like 10-15 minutes, the students can share their findings with the group in the form of a Prezi, Google Slides, or speech. The goal of this activity is for students to become familiar with alternative health practices, be able to list and discuss specific practices, and possibly use some of these practices in their lives.
Anatomy Arcade makes basic human anatomy come alive by using activities that allow for interactive learning by students. The site includes interactive games involving the following body systems: skeletal, articular, muscular, circulatory, respiratory, nervous, digestive, endocrine, and general anatomy. The activities included are crossword puzzles, matching, word searches, study videos, and integrated biology videos.
Students explore Hooke's law while working in small groups at their lab benches. They collect displacement data for springs with unknown spring constants, k, by adding various masses of known weight. After exploring Hooke's law and answering a series of application questions, students apply their new understanding to explore a tissue of known surface area. Students then use the necessary relationships to depict a cancerous tumor amidst normal tissue by creating a graph in Microsoft Excel.
Scoring sheet to use during an archery unit. The students can play the game cricket much like the dart game cricket. The students will need to shoot 3 arrows per round and the goal is to hit all the rings (10) 3 times. This is usually done as a group effort and the 1st team to hit all the rings 3xs wins.
This is a quick way to assess whether or not students can apply the 7 fundamental steps of archery after those steps have been taught and practiced.
Students learn more about how muscles work and how biomedical engineers can help keep the muscular system healthy. Following the engineering design process, they create their own biomedical device to aid in the recovery of a strained bicep. They discover the importance of rest to muscle recovery and that muscles (just like engineers!) work together to achieve a common goal.
