We’re proud to announce that HealthPOINT at Dakota State University is now joining forces with Health EDventure.
Health EDventure is a comprehensive curriculum website that focuses on health lifestyles and illness prevention. Since 2006 when it was founded, Health EDventure has worked with over 57,000 teachers and students in the state of South Dakota. Our focus at HealthPOINT is health information technology and all that it entails for health care professionals so we are excited to add health education for kids and teens to our line-up.
Previously Health EDventure programs were only available to South Dakota students, teachers and parents, but beginning with the upcoming 2014-15 school year, Health EDventure programs will be available to use across the U.S. The programs include:
Healthy KidZ Club is an opportunity for K-3 grade students to practice healthy habits while participating in a club atmosphere in the classroom. The Healthy KidZ Club teacher/leader uses the provided calendar as an outline for the activities. Each month (September-May) students complete one health-related challenge to earn a sticker to place on their large badge.
South Dakota Road Trip takes students on a virtual tour of South Dakota. Throughout the program students make “stops” at large, small and historically important towns and while “visiting” each town students discuss town history, state history and a healthy habit. While “traveling”students also practice map building and creative writing.
