Two curriculum units for educable mentally retarded (EMR) students focus on: (1) developing a good self image and an appreciation for proper hygiene, and (2) understanding food purchasing and distribution and the need for budgeting food money. Each unit includes the objective of making EMR students more aware of careers available either in the food services or public health fields. The food service unit is directed toward the intermediate EMR level; the self-awareness and hygiene unit is geared toward the primary EMR class, but the ideas it contains could also be taught in more depth on the intermediate level. A chart format is used to list suggested content questions, teaching techniques and learning activities, and resources and materials. A black column is provided for teachers to include their own materials. Culminating activities conclude each unit's activities, followed by a list of resources. (SD)
