Study of the human body and health education go hand in hand so I've listed these resources together in this section. Many of the standard health texts published for government schools are either objectionable or a waste of time for homeschoolers. We should be training our children to care for their bodies with good health habits, good nutrition, and proper exercise without a health curriculum directing us. If we do in-depth study of the human body, we will very naturally learn about some good health habits as we learn how the human body functions and the problems we encounter when we mistreat it.
While I'm not excited about health textbooks, as you can tell, some texts and other resources can point out topics we might wish to cover and help us focus on particular areas.
Note that A Beka's health textbooks are designed to be used along with another science text to make up a complete science course in most of the elementary grade levels.
Note: Publishers, authors, and service providers never pay to be reviewed. They do provide free review copies or online access to programs for review purposes.
