Sample Unit Overviews

This Guide to Teaching Healthy Living is written to help secondary educators as they implement The Ontario Curriculum, Grades 9 to 12, Health and Physical Education.

Facilitating learning focused on the overall expectations and making connections helps make learning relevant for students. This guide includes sample unit overviews illustrating how educators may organize the learning, drawing on concepts from different content areas to help students make connections to various aspects of their well-being. These sample unit overviews are meant to guide educators’ thinking when they create their own unit plans to teach Healthy Living in accordance with the 2015 H&PE curriculum expectations. They are not meant to be fully developed, comprehensive units.
