6th and 7th grade Health
We are done with anatomy, we have finished the bones, muscles, and joints. Now we are changing gears to social health.
-For 6th grade, we are learning how to become an ally and how to make new friends. We will continue with topic through the month of February. The lessons will focus much on respect and how to properly talk to peers.
-For 7th grade, we are currently working on a similar topic, but instead of making new friends, we are talking about how to disagree respectfully. Again, this subject matter is backed up heavily with respect and different ways to interact with a peer without fighting.
