Teacher Tutorial

Make learning healthy habits fun!

The Florida Department of Health in collaboration with the Florida Department of Education have developed a new resource for teachers: "A Teacher Tutorial: Activities that Make Teaching Healthy Habits Fun." This video collaboration outlines three activities for elementary physical education and/or classroom teachers who incorporate nutrition education through fun, non-elimination games.

The three activities demonstrated in the video align with Florida's Standards for Physical Education. Written descriptions of the activities are below:

Healthiest Weight Florida is a public-private collaboration bringing together state agencies, not for profit organizations, businesses, and entire communities to help Florida's children and adults make choices about healthy eating and active living.
