Divided into parts for parents, younger children, and teenagers, Kid's Health presents health issues in an attractive, frank, and appealing format. The younger kid's section features a daily health question, homework help, a "Big Question" section, hot topics, and health concerns presented from the point of view of the child. In addition, some of the pages are available in Spanish. Other sections include health issues for grown ups and a glossary, the latter of which is available in Spanish. Video clips include health-related topics featuring well-known athletes. The teen section provides answers to multiple teen questions about health including sexual issues, drug and alcohol concerns, food and fitness, your body, your mind, and hot topics. The parents' section has regular health topics about raising a child. Requires Flash.

tag(s): body systems (57), emotions (35)

In the Classroom

Health teachers will want to share this site on their teacher web page or in class as part of sex ed units and study of disease. Younger students wondering about illnesses such as cancer will also be able to find good information, written at a level they can understand.

This site contains open discussion of topics. We suggest that you preview it to be sure it is in compliance with your school's policies. Some portions discuss topics that will cause great giggles among less mature students, so preview and set the tone before trungin students loose.

Are you teaching plays that include fencing? Are you students completely unaware of what fencing entails? If you want to teach the basics of fencing to students, even if you only want to let them know how difficult it is, this is a good site with a lesson plan. It offers direct objectives in 7 75-minute classes (which could be adapted to shorter time periods). You should have access to the 3 different types of fencing equipment (foil, ?p?e, and sabre)and some expertise (or access to some expertise!) in the art. But vastly fascinating for students!

In the Classroom

The lessons are sound and basic. The 3 "further information" links at the bottom of the page no longer work, but it should not be difficult to find similar working URLs on the net for fencing in theater and the movies.

Soccer - what the rest of the world calls football - is truly the world's sport, so the World Cup is big news internationally. It's also a great time to link sport and world cultures. This site from the host country, Germany, offers games to play, background on the host country, and a sampling of the action from a German perspective.

tag(s): german (64)

In the Classroom

If in need of a fun game during a lesson on International sports OR more information about Germany, be sure to check this site out. For the former there is an interactive game, "dribble king," that students could play on classroom computers. For the latter, there is ample information about German industries, business, soccer culture, and even travel destinations. Though its a bit text heavy, this could be great brush-up material for teachers before teaching a lesson on some aspect of German culture. Foreign language teachers could incorporate this into student research projects or during a lesson discussing vocabulary centered around sports.

This online exhibition includes frequently updated articles of interest, online games and videos, and other fun stuff to helps kids understand the sophisticated workings of the human body. Students can practice using their own fine motor skills, view some amazing (and slightly gross) scenes of body systems at work, watch what happens when food is digested, and observe the invasion of a common cold virus. Click on Bodyworks Games to find several interactives including Nutrient Roundup and Muscle Hustle. Some of the games open in pop-up windows. Make sure your pop-up blocker is set to allow them to open.

In the Classroom

This site is an excellent addition to a science lesson on the human body, health class, Olympic unit, and more! Treat your students to the interactives on your projector or interactive whiteboard. Then set up a "health and science" computer center using the various games and activities. Many of the games are excellent review activities.
