Arthur[R] Presents Hooray for Health! A Health Curriculum for Children.
Schottman, Elly, Ed.
This health curriculum for teachers, after-school providers, and school nurses uses the cartoon character Arthur to introduce four units that explore four distinct early childhood health themes. The themes are: "Eat Well. Stay Fit" (good nutrition and exercise); "Open Wide!" (dental health); "Dealing with Feelings" (emotions); and "Head Lice Advice" (head lice). Each unit includes background information, age-appropriate activities, a book list, a featured Arthur show, and family activity sheets in English and Spanish. The family activity sheets are also provided in Vietnamese, Chinese, and Tagalog on the ARTHUR[TM] site. (SM)
