Santé 4e année (Health Eduction 4)

Course Outline

Health education grades 4–6 builds on foundational learning and skill development from grades Primary–3 and continues its focus on the development of life skills through investigation of concepts related to mental health literacy, safe and healthy relationships, substance misuse prevention, injury prevention, sexual health, and chronic disease prevention through a study of health behaviours that together promote physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual health.

Health education curriculum is integrated primarily within English language arts and secondarily within mathematics in accordance with Plan for Instruction: Revised Time-to-Learn Strategy: Grades 4–6 (2016). Within this strategy there is discreet time available for learning and teaching within health education. The curriculum offers many opportunities for links to and integration with learning outcomes in other content areas, including science, social studies, and visual arts.
