Summary or Abstract : Cases of childhood obesity in the United States have risen dramatically in recent decades, and school-based health education is one preventive measure that could help reverse this epidemic. The purpose of this study was to evaluate changes in knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors of fourth and fifth graders as a result of their participation in six experiential-based lessons from a health education curriculum. Using a quasi-experimental design with non-equivalent groups, this study measured pretest and posttest scores in cognitive, affective, and behavioral domains. This study also examined the 311 youth participants' perceptions of health lessons and experiences, using research notes and audio recordings of group discussions and personal interviews. With repeated measures ANOVA, results showed statistically significant increases in health knowledge, attitude, and behavior scores for most students. Improvements in health attitudes and behaviors were modest, however, suggesting that six lessons are insufficient and more lessons may be more effective. Experiential-based lessons were found to be useful for delivering health lessons in nutrition, physical activity, and body image. The model of experiential learning used in this study was mostly appropriate for fourth and fifth graders, though the final two stages of the model may require more concrete questions to guide young students in thinking abstractly. While experiential-based health education lessons can address obesity by improving students' health knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors, the issue of childhood obesity requires a much greater social effort involving changes in school environments, public policy, and research funding priorities..
