Notes
  • This shows the wonderful interconnectedness of human econology/family studie/home economics and core curriculum. In schools who do not have the advantage of such a program for junior grades, the converse applies. Teachers at all level (primary, junior, and intermediate) can engage students and add richness to their practice by teaching all subjects through a family studies/human ecology lens.
