HollyDay Posted June 17, 2012 Share Posted June 17, 2012 I'm still struggling with finding a health curriculum and/or book(s) I like. I know what I don't want: 1. a biology class. We already did A/P. I don't want to repeat it. A brief refresher would be fine. It would be great in a health oriented way, just not a biology class. 2. books that spend chapters talking about necessity for taking a shower, brushing teeth and brushing hair. We got that down a few years ago..... 3. make up how to book. We have checked out several books from the library and have gone to make up/skin care classes already 4. how to dress. I do not want an out of date book talking about how to select clothing based on body type or worse, talking about how girls should only wear dresses and never, ever consider bathing suits. What I do want: 1. health!!!! What are communicable diseases, how to avoid and prevent illness, when to see a doctor, etc. 2. proper nutrition and exercise 3. first aid 4. disaster preparedness (hurricanes, tornadoes, wild fires, etc) 5. basic personal safety including household safety, fire prevention, food safety, etc. Does this exist? We have Total Health and it is an okay spine, but it is not quite what I want. I don't want something like Abeka either. Yes, I read the thread comparing the 2 curriculums. I even responded to that one. I do have a bunch of books to suppliment Total Health. I'm just getting bogged down creating my own program. Can anyone recommend titles??
