Health Quest presents a Christian health program recommended for students in grades 4-7, although I would think most fourth graders too young for this course. However, the material is definitely elementary level, not anywhere near the comprehensive coverage of a high school course. Topics covered are physical health, mental health, nutrition, injury and disease, and stewardship of both the environment and our bodies.
Health Quest is offered in either the LIFEPAC format or the Monarch computerized format.
A Christian perspective throughout the course lends a moral tone to the entire study. Content is uneven in quality with some sections interestingly written and others less so. Questions present some of the same problems encountered in other LIFEPACs: students are expected to answer with words used in the text sections, although other answers that a thoughtful student might come up with would also be true. Use discretion on marking incorrect answers. Scripture from the NKJV is used throughout the course. The Teacher's Guide for the LIFEPACs contains alternate pages using the KJV version for those who prefer that version. In addition, the Teacher's Guide contains course management instructions, alternate tests, and keys to all exercises and tests. The LIFEPAC course has five student LIFEPACs and a Teacher's Guide.
The Monarch version is a self-contained and self-checking computerized course that allows students to work very independently.
