This Grade 5 Health teaching resource offers an in-depth coverage of all the indicators for the outcome USC5.3: Analyze how infectious diseases (including HIV and Hepatitis C) and non-infectious illnesses/diseases challenge holistic well-being.
Although it has been written to meet the outcome and indicators for the Saskatchewan Health curriculum, it will meet the needs of educators teaching students about the challenges of infectious and non-infectious illnesses and diseases.
Lessons are presented in the order of the indicators:
a. Identify local, provincial and national health sources of information regarding illness/disease
b. Discuss criteria that can be used to decide if a health source is reliable
c. Investigate various sources of information about illness and disease (including cancers, diabetes, depression and heart disease)
d. Distinguish between infectious and non-infectious and between illness and disease
e. Demonstrate an understanding of ways in which the body protects itself from illness and disease (intact skin, understanding portals of entry such as eyes and mouth, immune system)
Investigate and articulate how the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being of self, family and community is affected by illness and disease
Ask questions and seek answers for deeper understanding:
Where do new diseases come from?
Why do some people die from a disease when some people can be cured?
Why are some diseases more common in adults than in children and vice versa?
Can a person have a disease and still be healthy?
h. Describe the challenge of illness and disease to attaining or maintaining holistic well-being
Templates are included for the culminating unit activity.
