BACKGROUND
 London Elementary (PK-4) is using The Great Body Shop curriculum to meet the Health TEKS in our school. 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 the National Health 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 CDC’s HECAT. The Great Body Shop is designed primarily for children and their families. Monthly, for grades PK-4, Student Issues are sent to the school to be used in the PE classroom. The Student Issue looks like a health magazine and is used like as a periodical or informational text. Teachers and students work with the instructional materials, once a week (Tuesdays), to provide a solid understanding of the health issues found in the magazine. At the end of the month, students take the Student Issue home and use them for family activities, discussions and homework. In this way, one Student Issue is able to educate not only the student, but support the family as well.
