Strand III - Mental Health for Grades K-3. Special Edition for Evaluation and Discussion.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Elementary Curriculum Development.
This health curriculum guide, intended for use with children in kindergarten through grade three, is based upon the commonality of experience which virtually each child brings into the classroom with him: his participation in a family unit. The contents of the guide are presented in outline form and cover the family, understanding the life cycle, and human growth and development. For each content area and its sub-divisions, fundamental concepts, teaching aids, and learning activities are suggested. The guide also supplies supplementary information which a teacher could incorporate into the lessons at a simplified level. It includes socialization patterns, value development, physical growth characteristics, and more sophisticated definition of concepts. Outcomes of this unit in mental health are stated in terms of the student's increased understanding and heightened appreciation of himself as a developing individual, of his role within his family, and of his relationships with those outside his family unit.
