Abeka Health Grade 5
This 8-week health course emphasizes health and wellness while studying nutrition, the circulatory system, respiratory system, and physical exercises. Hygiene, courteous behavior, God-glorifying attitudes, and spiritual warfare conclude the course. 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 text questions with answers.
The homeschool 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, 20-30 minutes per day, although this is flexible. Planning calendars and progress report forms are also included. Quizzes (6), 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 Grade 4-6 Teaching Charts are optional and 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.
