Body Image Education Unit and Lesson Plans for Year 5/6 Health and PE

612

Summary of Unit / Lesson Plans:

Four sequential lesson plans aligned to the AC Health and Physical Education curriculum. The lessons seek to inform students of the importance of healthy body image in comparison to the detriments of unhealthy body image.

Lessons have been developed from an active inquiry perspective. Learning guides students through a journey of discovery by reading, discussing, reflecting, analysing and responding as they participate in lesson activities. The comparison activity in lesson three opens students’ eyes to how influential, yet often incorrect, self-perceptions are. In consideration of a sociocultural perspective, lessons provide a discourse-rich context, in which learners interact and interpret subject matter to establish a personal understanding of how self-image is easily influenced by everyday interfaces. The final assessment allows student to apply their learning to the decisions they make about their own health and wellbeing.
