Type: Learning Activity

Overview:

In this activity, students will fill out their own “physical reactions to stress” inventory and graph the class results. Then they will work in pairs to learn more about the body mechanisms that cause physiological stress symptoms, such as a fast heartbeat, cold hands, and dry mouth, or even longer-lasting symptoms such as a headache and sleeplessness. Finally, students will discuss their own reactions to stress and understand that many physiological stress reactions are part of the body’s normal functioning. Students will also look at ways of dealing with stress

This alignment results from the ALEX Health/PE COS Resource Alignment Summit.
