Middle School Health with Ms. McFarland


Supplies:  spiral notebook, folder, index cards, blue or black pen and red pen

Curriculum:  Our middle school health education program focuses on physical, mental, and social health.

  • The sixth grade curriculum consists of units on balanced healthy lifestyles, tobacco, nutrition, fitness components, and communicable and non-communicable diseases.
  • The seventh grade curriculum consists of units on personal health, nutrition and nutrients, convenience foods, consumer responsibility, and medicine / drug use.
  • Continuing in eighth grade health, students complete an alcohol unit which focuses on use, misuse, and abuse of alcohol along with refusal skills and consequences. Eighth grade students then begin eight in depth mini-units of the eight body systems with each focusing on parts, functions, problems and care of each system.

Grades:  Grades are based on homework, quizzes (both announced and “pop”), notes, tests and projects.

Absence:  Please check in with me after an absence so we can update notes.
