Living with MAPEH is a new textbook series covering the subject areas Music, Art, Physical Education, and Health. It was developed by a select group of educator authors following the prescribed competencies of the K to 12 program of the Department of Education. It makes use of modern teaching that will motivate young individuals to participate in activities intended to develop not only their cognitive, affective, and psychomotor skills but also their higher-order thinking skills.
