How to Use This Course

Health 101 is a health class designed for students in 6th-8th grade. Each week will include a printable lesson with links to additional resources.

Course Introduction

Hi everyone! I am thrilled to be here and to offer Health 101 to your children. I am a New England native and love our four seasons. I am a nurse with over 20 years of experience both in nursing and education in the health field. I work full time as a Director of Nursing. I love nursing for so many reasons, but especially because I am able to teach every day. Teaching has always been one of my passions. I am now fortunate to say that my other full-time job is being a mother to a 15- and a 12-year-old, who are new to homeschooling as well. I have always dedicated myself to educating others, and I am pleased to be able to help you and your children in their education.

In Health 101 for seventh and eighth graders, students will learn about how important it is to be healthy. They will learn how the choices they make will affect their growing bodies now and later in life.

We are going to review various topics over the next 32 weeks. Each unit will cover a specific topic for students to review, research, read, study, and enjoy. What better way to learn than when you are having fun, right?
