As an important part of school education in China, health education plays a vital role in the physical and mental development of young students. At present, the pandemic has greatly affected the rhythm of people's study and life. Through sorting out research, it is found that the practical difficulties faced by my country's school health education in the post-epidemic era include: the top-level design and practice of health education modules are separated to some extent, and the pandemic there is a certain discrepancy between the targeted thematic content and the existing health education content, and there is a certain gap between the curriculum objectives and curriculum quality of health education. And based on this, a cracking strategy is proposed, so that the school's health education can have classes, content, and teachers.
