This health curriculum introduces positive body care habits that will help children learn ways to feel good about themselves and their bodies, prevent the spread of disease, and gain a measure of independence and control in their lives as they learn about body parts, the five senses, hand washing and hygiene, oral health, avoidance of germs, and taking medicine.

An overview of the body care topics covered in the curriculum
Suggested interest area materials and supports for creating the learning environment
Learning objectives and vocabulary words
Suggestions for evaluating children's understanding of each body care topic
More than 30 classroom activities
Family information and take-home activities
