Body's Building Blocks Teacher's Edition - Grades 5-6
The Body's Building Blocks is the 5th and 6th grade portion of this series by Schoolaid . There are three components to the curriculum student text, teacher edition, and tests. This level is intended to be used for both 5th and 6th grade, so the student text is divided into two "books." Each "book" is about 150 pages in length and divided into five units. You get two years of health for one low price! Each unit is divided into parts and a review rounds out each unit. It should take approximately 30 weeks to complete a "book," doing one part of each unit per week. The text is a hardcover book, so students are to complete exercises and chapter reviews on their own paper. Book 1 covers facts about the cell, food and nutrition, blood, safety and first aid, and mental/emotional/spiritual growth. A special feature of Book1 is Exercising for Fun and Health includes instructions for a variety of games. Book 2 builds upon the content of Book 1 and continues with nutrition, safety and first aid, structure of the human body, the body's interior resources, healthy personalities, and meeting handicapped people. At the back of the text is a thorough glossary of the terms found throughout the text. The separate Test Booklet includes a chapter test for all chapters in both Book 1 and Book 2. This Teacher Edition includes all student pages, answer keys (including the tests), lessons suggestions, and discussion questions.
The annotated teacher's edition contains many notes to help the teacher besides all the answers to the exercises and tests. Other activities are also suggested for various lessons, especially in the parts on first aid which needs class practice to be taught properly.
