Healthy Living from the Start: A health curriculum for grades K-3
Healthy Living from the Start is a comprehensive health curriculum that provides the framework for teaching children about health and well-being. Designed to be used throughout the early grades, this book has a flexible format that allows you to customize your health program for use with multiple grades or in a sequential manner from kindergarten through third grade. The course is divided into 36 lessons, one per week for an entire school year. Each lesson includes three activities to choose from for each grade level, giving you a wide range of options for exploring each topic. Activities, which can usually be completed in 15 –30 minutes, provide the starting point for conversations about health and fitness.
The course is divided into six units:
- Physical Body
- Personal Safety
- Healthy Habits
- Self and Community
- Whole Health
This book is written with homeschooling parents in mind, but this curriculum can easily be used by teachers in a group setting.
