This text places special emphasis on the study of the endocrine, immune, and nervous systems. Children become familiar with major health concerns such as drug abuse and the deadly disease AIDS, discovering the physical, mental, social, and spiritual effects of these problems on the individual and on a nation. A proper attitude toward safety is stressed, teaching personal responsibility for safe behavior. The students learn to recognize symptoms requiring basic first-aid procedures for minor injuries. Children learn that health choices made in early years influence their level of health for the rest of their lives.
This text is scheduled for the last 9 weeks of science class, following the completion of Observing God's World.
A Beka does not sell their materials to retail bookstores, preferring instead to sell their products through representatives and through their website. As a result, we can offer only used A Beka, and can't guarantee we'll get it. We offer here the current retail price of the book for your information, but if our page does not say "Add Used to Cart," we do not have a copy.
