Active Living 12

Acting Living 12 Course Overview

Big Ideas

Physical activity is an important part of overall health and well-being.

Finding enjoyable recreational activities can motivate people to participate more regularly in physical activity.

Safety and injury prevention practices allow lifelong participation in physical activities.



This is an ongoing year long course without boundaries like at any regular school. By this I mean you can register anytime during the year (including summertime) and you have a year to complete the course although it should never take that long. It follows the 4 main concepts called core competencies that the Ministry of Education has put forward for the new curriculum and these are the 4 units of the course. Once you register you will have partial access to the course which will be enough information for you to complete the first assignment called the StartUp Assignment. Once this is marked, you will be activated and have full access to the course so you can complete all four units entirely online.
