The curriculum map that was created is for a fifth-grade class. This class is already

designed to meet the needs of each learning style to ensure a positive learning impact on each

student. Most lessons are created to go through a cycle rotation, each station appeal to one of the

multiple intelligences. This helps appeal to each leaner spiritually, intellectually, and emotionally.

The six assignments that are created for the next 6 months are slightly different. While

they may appeal to most learning styles, their main purpose is to educate leaners on the six

different aspects of healthy living. The focus is to not only have my learners engage in said

activity, but to understand the importance and how to incorporate it in their own lives. These

health lessons could lead to a happier, healthier, less stressed environment for my class. They

will learn healthy habits that they can incorporate in their life, seamlessly. The purpose of these

assignments is to shine light on this important matter in a fun way. Have them engage in the

activities and then educate them on how to live a continuous lifestyle. These lessons could be

shared with each of my learners families too, creating a widespread of healthy decisions.
