Health and Wellness Project

Part 1

Topic and Annotated Bibliography


For Part 1 of the Health and Wellness Project, you must:


  1. State the topic you plan to address in your Health and Wellness Project.
  2. Create an annotated bibliography that includes at least 5 scholarly (peer reviewed or government sources) and current (published within the last five years) you are considering for use in your project, one of which must be your textbook. You must cite each source in current APA format.
  3. Include a 50–100-word explanation below each citation of how you plan to use the source or why you think the source will be useful for your project.
  4. Your completed document will include a title page, a sentence clearly stating your specific topic, the annotated bibliography that lists your references and your explanations.  Order it in such a way that the full reference in APA style format is listed first, then your explanation of how you will use this source in your project, repeat for each reference.








Part 2

Topic Proposal, Rationale, and References Page


Select one of the following formats for your project:


  1. Create a parent newsletter.
  2. Create 5 activity plans that you can use in your preschool classroom to teach your chosen topic.


Based on feedback you received on Part 1 of the project, revise and finalize your topic choice and submit a rationale of 200–250 words describing the reason for selecting your topic, the format your project will take, and the concepts you will cover. Include at least 1 NAEYC standard which supports the rationale for your project.


Using feedback you received on Part 1 of the project, revise your reference page to correct any APA errors.  You must include a minimum of 3 scholarly sources, one of which must be your textbook.


Be professional in your writing. Refer to your students in one of the following ways: students, children, preschoolers, or young children. Referring to students as “kids” is not a good choice when writing a professional educational paper.


Submit the above information in a single Word document (.doc or .docx format).

  • 2 pages of content;
  • a references page with a minimum of 4 sources (2 scholarly sources, your textbook, and NAEYC).
