Biology and health
The Biology and health textbook for 7th grade builds on the Science -
Our Immediate Surroundings textbook for 5th and 6th grade, all emphasising
the social and economic perspective on the issues of health and
environment. The teaching material is logically and carefully graded from
simple to complex, from less to more familiar, from specific to more
general. The Small Illustrated Lexicon supplements the textbooks with
interesting facts, practical advice and applications. A wide range of
research tasks provides opportunities for group work in class.
The Science - Our Immediate Surroundings textbook for 5th and 6th
grade is an introduction to knowledge about his immediate environment,
including fruits and vegetables, household and farm animals as well as
problems of adolescence and how to cope with them.
One of the most inspiring and colourful textbook of the series is
Biology and health for 7th grade, which introduces pupils to forms and
typologies of wildlife in Hungary and other, more distant lands. It
stresses the importance of environment protection for the survival of
animal life and dangers that face animal species. Various examples inspire
pupils to take action for the protection of their environment.
The textbook for 8th grade introduces pupils to the structure and
functioning of the human body, stressing the importance of proper
nutrition to prevent ill health. A variety of real life examples and
advice help develop appropriate life style and habits.
The teaching material, designed in lesson units, follows a carefully
graded syllabus, adaptable to the varying needs of different students.
Text, illustrations and pictures complement each other and help students
focus on addressed topics and promote better understanding. The textbooks
are praised to be course books to teach and learn from.
The series Science for Teenagers have been awarded the Golden Award of
the International Exhibition of Didactics, "HUNDIDAC", the Booker
Prize of the International Book Festival and the award "Szép magyar könyv"
("Beautiful Hungarian Book") as well.
