Cheap or free elementary Health curriculum


Recommended Posts

I need to check off the "health" portion of my county review, and am obviously behind for this year! What are your recommendations for an online, or printable, or library-based Health unit that I could do with my 3rd and 4th graders in the next month or two?


I know that simply checking out some library books and reading them would suffice, but just wondered if anyone knows of anything I might add, just for fun.

Look at Guest Hollow's Little Otter Anatomy suggestions.  


Jenn's book list shows some that might work:


Why I Sneeze, Shiver, Hiccup & Yawn

The Busy Body Book: A Kid's Guide to Fitness

Hello Reader: Make Your Way for Tooth Decay

Eat Healthy, Feel Great

Gregory, The Terrible Eater

I'm Growing!

Germs Make Me Sick

Pasteur's' Fight Against Microbes

Tiny Creatures: The World of Microbes

Germs! Germs! Germs!

Sleep is for Everyone

Doctor De Soto

What's Eating You? Parasites - The Inside Story

No Thanks, but I'd Love to Dance:  Choosing to Live Smoke-Free

Watch Out At  Home



These might be too juvenile for your dc, but looking for these at your library may lead you to other titles that fit the bill.

Maybe the Child Nutrition and Cooking course from coursera would work if you're watching it with them?  it's self paced.  I don't know what you'd do to prove you did it for portfolio purposes (and not pay). maybe screen shot of quizzes after you get them?




It might be too much for some children.  But it's not intended as college or graduate work either.

Harcourt Health and Fitness elementary texts plus their corresponding free printable activity book could work.


Brainpop Junior health videos are also great!
