Written from a thoroughly Christian perspective, this interesting, practical text addresses the health care issues that concern young adults today. Health discusses the various body systems in the field of health care that most directly involves them. Therefore, as students read about nutrition, growth, and development, they learn about the digestive and endocrine systems. The section on fitness includes the skeletal, muscular, cardiovascular, and respiratory; the section on mental health, the nervous system. This integral approach helps students better understand their bodies and determine the steps needed to attain and maintain good health.
Other important chapters include information on safety, first aid, drug abuse, and interpersonal relationships. Students and teachers alike are sure to appreciate the colorful photographs, illustrations, and diagrams—including an atlas of the body systems—as well as the study questions for comprehension, application, and review. One semester course.
A Beka Support Materials:
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 "Buy Used," we do not have a copy.
