To the Teacher

Good Growth Guide is written on a fourth-grade level. The lessons revolve around a family, particularly the fourth-grade twins Joel and Jason, who like to study health but have to learn some lessons by experience. They learn about the importance of balanced meals and how to pack nutritional lunches. They are drilled on safety and first aid as well as taking responsibility for their actions. They are taught about the basic parts of the body and how to care for them. Intertwined in their daily education, they experience the satisfaction of common courtesy, simple manners, and Christian hospitality.

This book is divided into five chapters with six parts to each chapter. The first five parts of each chapter have exercises after each part, while the sixth part is a chapter review followed by a chapter test. Before you give the books to the students, we suggest you cut out the tests in the back of each book and store them until you are ready to use them.

One important requirement to teach health successfully is the teacher's enthusiasm and interest in the subject. How can a teacher develop an interest in health? He can study each lesson before teaching it, and plan ways to present it that will catch the children's attention. He can add interesting information of his own to supplement the lessons in the book. Extra health activities make it more interesting, too, such as charts, pictures, booklets, etc.

Suggestions for class routines, practice, and review are offered inside the front and back covers of this book.
