How often health classes are taught determines how much HealthSmart content can be covered.
The elementary grades are designed to be taught over the course of the school year for each grade, depending on how often teachers address health topics. At the middle and high school levels, most content units can be taught over a semester, if health is taught only once per week. If health is a daily class, it might be possible to cover three or four of the content units in a semester, and all of the units over the course of a year. Teachers can use the online Lesson Planning Tool to help design a course of study that will cover desired content in the time they have available.
