PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This unit is based on the outcomes for the Saskatchewan Health Curriculum, but will meet the outcome needs of Grade 2 Health dealing with illness and disease and the impact on personal health. There are six lesson plans that include children's literature suggestions and activity suggestions for students. There is also a word wall for feelings and a checklist of I Can Statements for this unit.

Outcomes covered:

c. Describe how particular illnesses can be transmitted (air – coughing and sneezing; direct contact – kissing; feces – animal and human; blood products – touching a used needle)
