Overview


Health, Safety, and Nutrition A to Z gives teachers and parents a detailed lesson plan format of open-ended, age- appropriate activities for young children ages one and up. The activities are easy-to- understand and follow for children and adults alike. Each section helps teachers and parents find health, safety, and nutrition activities to support a theme-based curriculum, to incorporate a letter of the week, or to provide a spur-of-the-moment filler idea. Many activity choices are given for each targeted alphabet letter. This child-centered text focuses on health, safety, and nutrition as a process rather than as a product, giving children an appreciation for learning and creating. The author makes certain that teachers, parents and children will enjoy the activities as they explore new learning processes.
