Lesson Planning for Skills-Based Elementary Health Education is a highly practical resource for elementary health educators or general classroom teachers looking for innovative, tried-and-true ways to implement health education.

The text offers effective skills-based learning activities, lessons, units, and assessments for your classroom that you can use as they are or with modifications to meet the needs of your students. You can use this text to build a completely new curriculum or to supplement your existing curriculum, providing a smooth transition from a content-based approach to a skills-based approach. The authors explain the rationale and foundation for making that transition, putting the lesson plans, activities, and assessments into context as you learn how to implement a skills-based approach.

The 130 lessons and activities in Lesson Planning for Skills-Based Elementary Health Education have been
  • created by the authors and experienced teachers broadly recognized for their expertise in skills-based health education;
  • organized to map to the skills in the National Health Education Standards and align with a five-step skill-development model;
  • designed to be adaptable to meet the needs of all students; and
  • enhanced with student worksheets that are available in both English and Spanish.
Lesson Planning for Skills-Based Elementary Health Education is an ideal companion to The Essentials of Teaching Health Education, a foundational text by Benes and Alperin that presents teaching and assessment strategies for planning and implementing a skills-based approach to teaching health education. Together, these two books can help you effectively teach skills-based health education from day one.

Lesson Planning for Skills-Based Elementary Health Education offers a detailed, easy-to-use learning activity template and employs a teacher-friendly format that has been proven effective in the field. It comes with a web resource that provides digital versions of the book’s many reproducible forms, available in both English and Spanish. (The web resource is included with all new print books and some ebooks. For ebook formats that don’t provide access, the web resource is available separately.)

The text is organized into two parts. Part I delves into key aspects of planning, implementing, and assessing a skills-based approach, offering you a strong foundation in the core concepts of the approach. Each of the part II chapters is devoted to a skill addressed in the National Health Education Standards, providing you with the following material:
  • An overview of the skill
  • Key considerations for teaching the skill
  • A unit outline
  • Assessments
  • Lesson plans
  • Learning activities
Lesson Planning for Skills-Based Elementary Health Education offers you all you need to put a skills-based approach into practice: the solid foundational information that explains the concepts and the resources, tools, and strategies to help you implement the lesson plans and activities that will aid your students in developing proficiency in the skills emphasized in the national standards.

Buy the book NOT the ebook

This is a really good resource BUT I suggest buying the hard copy NOT the ebook. When I purchased the ebook I assumed it would be a PDF version not something I can only view on another website which there was no mention of. It is more work to access it and not the easiest to navigate.
The web resource is pretty good and a bit easier to navigate. Just a bit disappointing that there was not a lot of detail or a preview about it.
The lesson plans are excellent but the worksheets the authors created are a good template but lacked personalization. I expected more detail and personalization geared towards elementary students.
I do plan on purchasing the hard copy version in the near future as it really does a good job explaining the skills based approach and aligns perfectly with the standards.
