Abeka Health Grade 6
Beginning with safety and basic first aid, students will learn about the endocrine system, nutrition and physical activity, the immune system, and the nervous system. Human fertilization and fetal development are also introduced from a conservative perspective. Students are also familiarized with legal and illegal drugs including tobacco and alcohol, drug abuse, and related health issues. Peer pressure is discussed, along with ways to make wise, healthy choices.
Colorfully illustrated, the student textbook includes readings, chapter comprehension and self assessment questions, and end of chapter questions. A colorful atlas of the human body is also included, along with a glossary of terms. The text answer key includes all the textbook questions with answers. The homeschool science and health curriculum lesson plans include detailed, day-by-day lesson plans, teaching tips, bible memorization and other enrichment ideas for science (27 weeks) and health (8 weeks). Lessons are scheduled 5 days per week, 30 minutes per day, although this is flexible. Planning calendars and progress report forms are also included. Quizzes (8), tests (4) and worksheets (11) are found in the non-reproducible quiz, test and worksheet book. Answers are found in the separate quiz, test, and worksheet answer key. The Homeschool Health 4-6 Teaching Charts are optional but scheduled in the curriculum lesson plans. The brightly colored and double-sided charts measure 8 ½” x 11”. Perforated for ease of use, the double-sided charts (one side labeled with the flip side unlabeled), cover the food pyramid, the structure of a tooth, skin, and body systems. Charts are used in grades 4, 5 and 6, making this a great value for families. If you plan to use them for consecutive years, you may wish to place them in page protectors for improved durability.
