I'm searching for a health curriculum or resource. I'd really prefer a wholistic natural health type but I know this might be wishful thinkng. Id rather is not be a workbook type of thing but rather something more interactive. Even a book of ideas might suffice...

Holistic is a very general concept. What precisely are you looking for? Anatomy  and physiology? Herbal Medicine? Microbiology? Accupuncture?

That's a great question!  I have pulled information from various sites (avocado growers, nih.gov, etc.) and used the information as I've found a topic we've wanted to learn about.  I have not found anything that is comprehensive or wholistic/organic/etc.  If you find it, please post--I'd love to see it!

Anything really. I'll take what I can get. I assume that anything holistic I could find for kids would be related to nutrition which is what I was thinking originally. I'd also like some sexuality lesson plans. Herbal medicine I can do myself since I've taken courses and have lots of books on that. I make my own herbal preparations so we could do that together. However, I woudn't mind a resource for simple way to introduce some herbs to kids if there were such a resource....

Hi again!  I've been keeping this topic in mind as I've moved through the week...

 

we have this book http://www.amazon.ca/Kids-Herb-Book-Children-Ages/dp/1885003366/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1325600335&sr=1-1 and I like it very much

 

I also love the laminated field guides about edible plants

 

Here is one set of info (mainstream however) with some lesson plans

http://www.energybalance101.com/schools/teachers/module.cfm?grade=K-2&module=1

 

In the US there is a new nutrition mantra (the plate, not the pyramid) which I haven't personally delved into

http://www.choosemyplate.gov/food-groups/downloads/TenTips/DGTipsheet1ChooseMyPlate.pdf

 

this site was good for some topic (although I used it a while ago and can't remember why...mommy brain!!!)

http://kidshealth.org/parent/positive/family/tv_habits.html

 

the Rookie guides are basic, but good

http://www.amazon.com/Does-Brain-Rookie-Read-About-Health/dp/0516278533/ref=sr_1_28?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1325831703&sr=1-28

 

there is an ok (tolerable) dr. seuss book which is fun to read and engaging for kids

Oh the Things You Can Do That Are Good for You!: All About Staying Healthy (Cat in the Hat's Learning Library) [Hardcover]
