Stronck, David R., Comp.
Provided is a collection of 54 health education activities which attempt to bridge the gap between health information and changing health-related behaviors. The activities, which vary in content and in levels of difficulty, are grouped into six chapters with a range of 8 to 11 activities in each chapter. Chapters focus on body organs and systems, the five senses, growth and development, nutrition and foods, pollution and diseases, and on drugs, poisons, and safety. Each activity includes title, focus (concepts and/or skills developed by the activity), background information, challenge (problem-oriented approach to stimulate youngsters' interests), a list of materials and equipment needed, instructional strategies, further challenges, and a list of student and teacher reference materials. An introductory chapter which defines health education and discusses the need for health education and children's interest in health topics is also included. (JN)
