Johnstone, Robert H.; And Others
This publication contains curriculum materials and suggestions for teaching disease prevention and control in grades kindergarten through three. Objectives of this program include: (1) understanding that organisms too small to be seen can cause disease, and that many diseases can be transmitted from one person to another; (2) becoming familiar with the fundamental principles of disease prevention and transmission; (3) developing personal habits that will protect individuals and others from communicable diseases; (4) having a basic understanding of community efforts to minimize the communicable disease problem. The publication format is intended to provide teachers with a basic content in the first column, a listing of the major understandings and fundamental concepts which children may achieve, in the second column; and information specifically designed for classroom teachers which should provide them with resource materials, teaching aids, and supplementary information in the third and fourth columns.
