High School Lesson Plans for Physical Education and Health Subjects Top 10 Reasons For Choosing Abstinence Activity I generated this “Top 10” list after teaching Health for 16 years, but there are certainly other reasons than these 10 for abstinence and you may want to change the 10, adding in your own ideas.

I was reminded of that point by reading a recent post on Maps Mania. That post featured maps of art galleries around the world.
