Ideal for Grades: K-2
Duration: Eleven, 15-minute episodes
Producer: Slim Goodbody Productions with GPN
Created by John Burstein (Slim Goodbody) and produced in cooperation with GPN,
the eleven 15-minute programs provide a lively, fresh and integrated approach to health
education. In addition to the programs, there’s an interactive web site and a teacher’s
guide — either in print or on-line.
Host Slim Goodbody and a diverse group of target-age children engage in on-location
explorations with health experts. The programs feature animation, music, dance, colorful
costumes and puppets. The series is engaging, positive, fast-paced and visually and
Good Bodies helps students acquire the knowledge and skills that will enable
them to adopt behaviors that enhance good health. Health educators believe it is easier
to prevent risky health behaviors than to change them once they’ve been established. An
appropriate place to start is in schools with students in Kindergarten through Grade 2.
Free teacher's guide is available for each episode. Click on the individual episodes "More Info" below to access.
