This health curriculum guide, intended for use with children in grades four through six, contends that the school is in a unique position to supplement efforts by home and community in raising the levels of physical, mental, and social-emotional health for each child. The contents of the guide are presented in outline form and cover observing signs of positive health, planning for total fitness in each individual's life, and other environmental and community factors which may influence health. For each content area and its sub-divisions, fundamental concepts and understandings, teaching aids, and learning activities are suggested. The guide also supplies supplementary teacher and student references; these include books, filmstrips, and other audio-visual aids. Outcomes of this health unit are given in terms of the student's understanding of personal health practices, his appreciation of health measurement techniques, and the importance of periodic health assessment, his knowledge of the school health team and other community helpers, and his awareness of certain physical, mental, and social-emotional commonalities and differences which exist between himself and his peers.
