"Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise." --Benjamin Franklin, Poor Richard's Almanack, 1732-1758
"Health is the new wealth."--Paul Wall, Rapper, 2012
These quotes, separated in time by nearly 300 years, illustrate positive attitudes about health and allude to the importance of making healthy choices. But how are positive attitudes formed, and how do students learn the skills necessary for making healthy choices?
Health education--at home and at school, through example and instruction--has an obligation to teach strategies that students can implement to achieve physical, mental, emotional, and social health. This Notebooking Central booklet contains templates that present basic health information, encourage students to adopt healthy behaviors, warn students of safety hazards, and teach preventive measures for a healthier, safer lifestyle. Learning about health is a very personal journey, and notebooking allows for the individualization and privacy needed by students.
Notebooking Central booklets are a response to teachers who asked for content-specific Notebook Foldables that:
- provide graphics to aid comprehension and memory;
- provide front tabs that elicit student responses on the back of tabs, underneath tabs, and on the notebook page surrounding tabs; and
- provide ideas for the use of Notebook Foldables within different content areas.
This Notebooking Central booklet offers templates for use in teaching basic or elementary Health--please see Table of Contents for complete list of topics included. Utilize the pages you consider most important, and use suggestions from other pages to generate your own ideas. Present a concept, then have students outline and design their own Notebook Foldables.
For more in-depth information on Notebook Foldables strategies, please consider Dinah Zike's Notebook Foldables for Spirals, Binders, and Composition Books book and companion CD, a 2011 Teachers' Choice Award winner. This book and the Notebooking Central series are designed to complement each other.
