Health and Fitness | 4-H Project Curriculum & Resources
In the health and fitness project area, youth design a personal fitness plan and track it using their own fitness file. Through interviews and personal experiences youth discover benefits to being fit as they practice making decisions, speaking with others, and managing themselves. Youth learn the importance of first aid as well as techniques for taking care of cuts and scrapes, nosebleeds, stings, burns, and other concerns. This project area is related to many other healthy living projects.
