Exploring Creation with Health and Nutrition

by Dr. Laura Chase Author

This 15-module course, which includes both a hardcover textbook and a spiral bound notebook, covers the physical, nutritional, emotional, and spiritual aspects of growing into a healthy adult. Students will study the systems of the human body, senses, genetics, temperaments, and the physical influence on thoughts and feelings. The course respectfully covers mental illness and emotional stability, as well as the value of human beings, our culture, our gender roles, our families, socialization, communication skills, and conflict resolution skills. Students will gain an in-depth knowledge of both macronutrients and micronutrients, including the importance of exercise and proper diet. Over 50 projects, noted in the textbook and included in the student notebook, cover materials such as nature versus nurture, personal temperament, good decision-making skills, boundary setting, analyzing food intake and activity levels, creating good hygiene habits, keeping a sleep record, and more. Parental Note: This is a full health textbook. Some students may not be matured enough to discuss some of the topics. The reproductive systems are covered in detail, including accurate, yet respectful, illustrations and descriptions. This text respectfully discusses the act of marriage, sexual misconduct, pregnancy, and sexually transmitted diseases. In addition, chapters discuss alcohol and drug abuse, depression, pornography and other topics that also require maturity. Please use your knowledge of your students to decide if this course is appropriate for their maturity levels.
