Part 1 contains materials which show the need for improved health programs in elementary schools. Part 2 discusses the total school health program and points out ways for teaching health more effectively. In part 3 new and creative teaching methods are discussed. Part 4 contains specific suggestions and course outlines for teaching nutrition, dental health, body growth, structure and function, safety, mental health, communicable diseases, drugs, tobacco and alcohol, family life and sex education, and consumer education to students in grades K-6.
