New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Elementary Curriculum Development.
Personal involvement in the nature of world health and solutions to world health problems are emphasized in this prototype curriculum for grades 4-6. It is designed to provide an awareness that eliminating world health hazards helps to protect people everywhere. Specific curriculum content studies: (1) people, places, and health (world health activities and the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund), (2) the World Health Organization, and (3) the health of children throughout the world. Appended material includes bibliographies of multimedia resources for teachers and students. This publication is one in a series of health curriculum materials devoted to environmental and community health (Strand IV). Four other strands deal with physical and mental health, sociological health problems, and education for survival. The format consists of four columns intended to provide teachers with: (1) a basic content outline, (2) major understandings and fundamental concepts, (3) teaching aids and learning activities, and (4) information about resource materials, sources, and personnel. Because of the comprehensive nature of the total curriculum, teachers are advised to become familiar with all strands presently in print. Related documents in Strand IV are ED 037 738-9, ED 049 477-8, and SE 016 280-6. (BL)
