Health Games

No doubt some students will already be experts at this game - they can lead the others through it.
It is distracting and requires constant attention so allow 20 mins or so to play and get some sort of result - ie death of everyone on the planet.

Yr 9 Health Oral Task - Ch 8 Diseases


Each pair of students has to create a 4 minute lesson segment presentation which includes:
  1. Students should concentrate on the 'shape' of the informtion and use appropriate graphic organisers.
  2. Background/History - weird facts, something really interesting, funny?
  3. Transmission/Risk of exposure
  4. Symptoms
  5. Treatment
  6. Prevention and control/Vaccines
  7. 5 power point slides (or similar),
  8. Class writing activity to complete during the lesson/presentation (short answer questions, cross word etc)
  9. Other students are required to take reasonable notes on each topic based on the presentation.

  • If all sections are attempted with some degree of competence then a C is the least mark to be awarded.
  • Some sections covered well - B overall
  • All sections covered well - A mark.

Each group will be peer assessed and graded A to C, no (+) or (-)
While the teacher will moderate the final mark, it will be based on the peer assessment.
