This is a non-athletic/activity exemption course. This is an interdisciplinary course taught by the Physical Education and Family & Consumer Science Departments. This course is a two hour block, one hour in lieu of the student’s normally scheduled lunch/study hall and the other hour meets the Physical Education requirement. The students will incorporate hands-on laboratory experiences that promote healthy behavior management aimed at achieving personal goals. In addition, students demonstrate the core concepts that they have learned by preparing daily lunches at home, which are then brought to school and graded during the nutrition/lunch portion of the course. This activity allows the student to demonstrate their ability to use knowledge gained in real world situations. Lastly, students also participate in a variety of field trips to enhance their understanding of improved personal performance, as it relates to physical fitness and nutritional intake
