Health Instruction in the Elementary School: Preface & Introduction


by Mary Reesor - 1912

Hygiene is a living, growing subject. It deals directly with the child,—his interests, his needs, his possibilities, and his limitations. Consequently it involves the study of life, of change, and of adaptation. Our knowledge of such a field of work is necessarily subject to reconstruction and reorganization, for its laws and principles must be as changing as are those of child life itself. While this biologic aspect broadens and humanizes the field, at the same time it makes the work in hygiene personally vital and delicately complex. In the elementary school we deal not with masses of children uniform as to development, needs, and interests, but with children individual as to intellect, development, endurance, efficiency, and needs, and so demanding and deserving individual consideration, care, and instruction. How to meet these needs of the growing, developing child is a question difficult to answer.
