Great for any Psychology or Health class, students will take a self-reflective survey regarding their own mental health, physical health, personal life, and more. Answering 6 questions each in 8 areas of their lives, students will complete a total of 48 questions. With the results, students will map out their scores on the included "Wheel of Life." This wheel is a great visual to see how their life is "rolling along."
This life assessment survey is a great way for students to assess where they are at in life, give them encouragement where they are succeeding, and shed a light on areas for improvement. Stress, health, and life are all measured in this activity. As a teachers, you may even want to fill it out yourself. I know I do from time to time.
This may be used in any health or psychology class. I use this during my Stress, Health & Disorders unit within my Psychology classes. Download the preview for a sample look at the questions and format. Enjoy this life changing lesson and thank you so much for your comments and ratings.
