Health Education Module Assignment

1. Choose two preschool books to be the basis of 4 lessons during the week. You will read these books over four days and talk about different concepts. One book should be nonfiction and one book should be realistic fiction using the same concepts. You can focus on any area of health education discussed in the Health Education Preschool Learning Experiences. 

2. Design 4 accompanying activities. Two will be small group activities and two will be learning centers. Each activity should take about 20 minutes.

         a. For the learning centers, tell what the goal of the center is, what are the children working on, the materials, the activity they will complete, and the supports in place for English language learners and children with disabilities.
         b. For the small group activities, tell what materials you will use, what the goal or objective is, what you as the teacher will be doing and what questions you will ask and use to guide the students, and what the students will do in the activity. 

3. For each center or activity, complete the scope and sequence checklist and describe how you are accessing the children on their learning of the preschool learning guidelines.
