Health Instruction in the Elementary School: Part II. Typical Methods and Material Developed Through the Application of the Principles Suggested in Part I.


by Thomas D. Wood & Mary Reesor - 1912

In the kindergarten where subject matter is less definitely divided into recitation periods than in the upper grades, instruction in hygiene must be of a rather intangible nature.

In fact, it is being recognized that here, where the home and school so intimately meet, is the significant place for the beginning of health instruction. The day's interests and activities abound with opportunities for introducing this work. Here, as in the higher grades, this instruction is not to be given in form of isolated material. It is to be, rather, the outgrowth of the daily activities in which the child is keenly interested and which become so large a part of his life.
