Focusing on caring for our body as the temple of God, this traditional curriculum introduces the importance of healthy living, safety habits and good manners from the elementary years through adulthood. In first through sixth grade, health follows science in the scope and sequence (see individual descriptions for the course length). The 7th grade Life Science course weaves the health instruction into the science text. Upper-level health (grade 8-12) is one semester and may be taken at any point. Abeka includes it in the 9th grade Student and Parent Kits, although parents can determine the best time for their student to begin.
Several components may be necessary to successfully teach Abeka Health depending on the grade level. Teacher editions, homeschool teaching charts, lesson plans, student editions, activity books, quizzes/tests/worksheets, and corresponding answer keys may be needed. Student books are softcover, and the teacher resources are spiral bound or soft cover. See individual grade descriptions for complete information. ~Deanne
