Summary of Project

The award-winning My Health My World project has developed exciting units on current environmental issues for students in grades K-4. Each unit weaves physical, earth and life sciences together and focuses on the relationships between people and their surroundings. Connections are made among science, health, mathematics, reading, language arts and social studies. Four units are available.

MY WORLD INDOORS creatively explores air quality and related issues, including allergies caused by substances in the places we live, study and work.

WATER AND MY WORLD provides a fresh perspective on water and why it's important to the well-being of all living creatures.

MY HOME PLANET EARTH looks at changes in the upper atmosphere, such as global warming, and how the changes may affect us.

FOOD AND MY WORLD examines food production, nutrition and food safety with unique activities for students and families.
