Our latest collection spotlight is up!  Visit our Body Talk display featuring children’s books with a human anatomy or physiology theme.

Connections to the BC Curriculum:

An understanding of the human body is essential in its relation to the Personal Awareness & Responsibility Core Competency which states:

“Personal awareness and responsibility include the skills, strategies, and dispositions that help students to stay healthy and active, set goals, monitor progress, regulate emotions, respect their own rights and the rights of others, manage stress, and persevere in difficult situations. Students who demonstrate personal awareness and responsibility demonstrate self-respect and express a sense of personal well-being.

Knowledge of the human body is tied to both physical and health literacy and, according to the BC Physical and Health Education Rationale, “Bringing together components of both physical and health education complements First Peoples perspectives and worldviews that recognize the importance of balancing all components of well-being to maintain a healthy and safe way of life.”


Big Ideas

“Knowing about our bodies and making healthy choices helps us look after ourselves” (Physical and Health Education, Kindergarten-Gr. 1)

“Healthy choices influence our physical, emotional, and mental well-being.” (Physical and Health Education)

“Understanding ourselves and the various aspects of health helps us develop a balanced lifestyle.” (Physical and Health Education, Gr. 4-5)
