Assignment #4
Lesson Plan 1
Title:
A Puff Doesn't Make You Cool Stuff
Subject: Health
Grade Level: 9-12
  • This lesson gives the student an understanding of the level of cigarette use in their school. Each student gives out five surveys and the research data is put into an excel spreadsheet. The class creates a chart based off the data they received from the surveys. The chart gives the students a visual of how prominent tobacco use is within their school.

Lesson Plan 2
Title:
Under the Influence
Subject: Health
Grade Level: 6-8

Lesson Plan 3
Title:
Roam the Halls for Fitness
Subject: Physical Education
Grade Level: 6-12
  • This lesson plan incorporates pedometers in physical education. The students roam the halls of the school and try to get in as many steps as possibly can during class. They then check their pedometers to see how many steps they actually took. I would probably change this lesson by using the track, or having the students put on the pedometers during some type of activity like frisbee golf.
