Mr. Corabi's

Health & Physical Education Class website

This is a supplemental website for the in-class material meant to provide additional resources including articles and videos on each main topic in our classes. .


For students at Rush Arts in Philadelphia, it will work in concert with our Google Classroom pages. It is not meant to be super-interactive but it is meant to be VERY informative. There is usually way more supplemental content on this website compared to what we go over in class for each topic that includes enrichment and remediation material. In some cases, topic pages are included we do not even go over.

At times, the additional information is included to enrich your personal knowledge on a topic. Most of the time when topics are included on this website that we do not go over in class it's because they are review topics of things you should've learned in middle school or 9th grade Health. Since I did not teach you in Middle School and you do not have 9th grade Health at Rush Arts, it is included for obvious reasons and will always be here for you to reference.

Some topic pages on this site have multiple sub-topics as you scroll down to limit the number of page jumps a student needs to make. Usually, the pages will have a table of contents at the top of the page so that students will be able to jump to other parts of that page quickly.

I hope the website serves you well and becomes a great resource for your learning.

If at any time you find information that is not correct or that seems biased, please send a kind email listing the page and specific content. Furthermore, if a student finds a resource (article, website or YouTube/Vimeo video) that you think is great for our class, please send it to Mr. Corabi with your name!

Students, parents or teachers from other schools are welcome to use these pages and materials for your own learning and teaching. Permission is granted to use any resource I created. Articles, websites, and youtube videos always have the original website listed next to them (in parenthesis).

If you do, please email me at to let me know how it works for you!

A disclaimer appears at the bottom of each page


Looking forward to a great year!
