Integrating health learning in subjects across the curriculum should not be a substitute for a comprehensive, sequential course of health education, but doing so can significantly support the learning that takes place in a health class. This tool offers pointers to the different ways in which health priorities can be reinforced in different subjects, for instance, in science, mathematics, social studies and language, either in all classes or as a term or half year theme.
