THE GREAT BODY SHOP is a comprehensive health education curriculum that is sequential, developmentally appropriate, culturally sensitive and medically accurate. THE GREAT BODY SHOP is aligned to state and national standards for health education, as well as the Healthy People 2020 initiative. It is aligned to the National Education Standards, the National Sexuality Education Standards, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Characteristics of Effective Health Education Curricular and the core concepts recommended by the CDC’s HECAT.
THE GREAT BODY SHOP is designed primarily for children and their families. Monthly, Student Issues are sent to schools. The Student Issue looks like a health magazine and is used like a periodical or informational text. At the end of the unit, students take the Student Issue home and use them for family activities and discussions.
