Healthy Environments focuses on teaching good environmental stewardship, which promotes positive environmental health. Today's students live in a world where environmental issues exist all around them. Global climate change, chemicals of concern, and degradation of natural resources are just a few of the many issues that they must deal with. However, teaching kids about environmental sustainability provides them life skills to make contributions now and helps define who they will become later in life.
This course is designed to provide the participant with the opportunity to develop the knowledge and skills needed to teach their students the life skills to promote a healthy environment. Learn easy ways to conserve energy, protect one’s health, and help save the environment. Instead of taking one week or one class session to focus on being environmentally conscious, finding ways to teach our youth how to take care of the world should be a continuous lesson infused into multiple subjects all year long. Projects will be implemented to support the objectives outlined by SHAPE America.
NOTE: Required book must be purchased separately.
This course is applicable towards the Health Education Teaching Certificate.
