Nutrition in Health. A Curriculum Guide. An Instructional Package for Grades K-6. Bulletin No. 4037.
Nutrition has always been an important subset of health education, and this instructional package is designed to help teachers instruct students about nutrition and health at the same time. The major emphasis of this package is to provide elementary school students with the knowledge needed to make informed food choices and thereby enable them to become responsible for their personal nutritional health. Nutrition concepts classified according to four major health content areas (mental health, physical health, safety, and community health) are identifed in the individual lesson plans included in this package. The teaching package begins with a section on "The Big Picture" that provides an overview of the major concepts and generalizations of nutrition in health. The first section is followed by seven sections, divided by grade level, of detailed lesson plans for K-6 teachers to use with their students. Appendices of additional resources are also included.
