Elementary School Health Education Curriculum Guide.
Texas Education Agency, Austin.
Continuity in the development of a comprehensive health education program for kindergarten through sixth grade is the goal of this curriculum guide for teachers. It is designed to encourage discussion and build concepts rather than to give specific information. Ten basic instructional areas and accompanying central concepts are identified: (1) community health; (2) environmental health and safety; (3) prevention of communicable diseases; (4) chronic and degenerative diseases; (5) consumer health; (6) health and fitness for daily living; (7) growth and development; (8) sex education for family living; (9) the use and abuse of tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs; and (10) nutrition. Each content area is divided into two levels, primary and intermediate, and outlines the major concept, subconcepts, behavioral objectives, content, motivating questions, and suggested learning experiences. Sources of print and non-print materials are appended. (BL)
