An effective and engaging method of teaching health curriculum is the use of group games and activities.
Many group games and activities are ideally suited to health curricula because they are inherently attractive to play and can explicitly or implicitly help students grow in their knowledge and application of basic health skills.
Key skills such as decision-making, interpersonal communication, effective listening, goal-setting, and critical-thinking can all be taught through the use of particular fun group games and exercises.
