Transcript of Touchstone 2 Unit 3 "Health"

Unit 3: "Health"
In this unit we are going to talk about healthy lifestyles. Begin by discussing with your partner the following questions:
Many young people don't worry about thier health because they feel that only older people have health problems. For this reason they may not take care of their bodies the way that they should.


What are some things that you would like to do in the future to become more healthy?
What are some things that you do that are healthy?
What are some things that you do that are not healthy?
Are you healthy?
Watch the short video "Danielle" and discuss with your partner.
However, life is much shorter than we think and the health decisions we make when we are young will likely affect us much quicker than we think.
