Health Academy is a day of active, age-appropriate health education for students in grades kindergarten through sixth. All the lessons are designed and taught by university students who are planning to be elementary teachers. Health Academy provides our area children with an intensive and diverse health education experience while providing our prospective teachers with an opportunity to plan and teach lessons through the course of a school day
