Healthy Living and Personal and Fitness Activities, Grade 11
Module 1 Overview: Healthy Active Living I
Why is health, physical activity, and well-being so important?
In this module, you will decide on which physical activities you will take part in during this course….and hopefully longer! You may already take part in team sports, that will count as physical activity in the course. However, since the course is about your personal fitness, you are also asked to add various physical activities to your daily routine, such as walking, running, bike riding, going to the gym, etc… You will log the activity and time on the activity log and complete reflections and journals on how you think your personal fitness and skills competence are improving.
Module 2 Overview: Healthy Active Living II
Do I make healthy choices and maintain a daily active life style? Am I working towards my long term goals?
In this module, you will learn about what it means to be healthy. The World Health Organization (WHO) defines healthy as “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” Does it mean the same to you? Do you consider yourself to be healthy?
Being healthy means eating healthy foods, exercising daily and feeling good about yourself. Throughout the module you will be developing the knowledge and skills you need to make healthy choices in the food you eat and the activities you do. Let’s begin!
