Health and Nutrition Basic Set Reviews

This article is in collaboration with Apologia Educational Ministries.

High school students are required to take a variety of classes and it can be hard to find just the right curriculum for certain courses.  This is especially true when you are searching for curriculum for classes that cover sensitive topics such as Health.  This is why members of the Homeschool Review Crew were very excited to receive Apologia Educational Ministries newest high school offering, Exploring Creation with Health and Nutrition by Dr. Laura Chase to review.

The Health and Nutrition Basic Set offers students in grades 8-12 a full health course that can be counted as a high school credit.  This set includes the hardcover textbook and a spiral-bound student notebook.  The solutions manual to the notebook is included in the book extras online.

Apologia Exploring Health and Nutrition
The Exploring Creation with Health and Nutrition by Dr. Laura Chase textbook includes 15 modules.  These modules teach students that health is about stewardship which means managing what you have to the best of your ability.  It teaches about our physical, social, mental, emotional, and spiritual health by discussing a variety of topics.  This textbook does cover sensitive and mature topics such as reproduction, drug abuse, and mental illnesses which is why they recommend that parents make sure their students are mature enough to handle this material.  All of the modules in this book are discussed from a Christian perspective.

The student notebook in the Health and Nutrition Basic Set is an essential part of this course.  It contains all the projects, study guides, and tests needed to complete this course.  It also includes pages for taking notes while reading, the On Your Own questions from the reading with space to answer them, and a suggested daily reading schedule.  If your student follows this schedule they will work on this course 3 days a week for 34 weeks.  You can view samples of both the textbook and student notebook on the Apologia Educational Ministries website.
