Summary or Abstract : The study investigated the relationship between health knowledge gained through an experiential health education curriculum and health behaviors among fifth grade students. Specifically, the study determined if fifth grade students who participated in the comprehensive, experiential health education curriculum in grades kindergarten through third, Kids for Health (KFH), performed healthier behaviors than fifth grade students who did not participate in the curriculum. The study assessed differences among participants in health behaviors related to diet and nutrition; drug, alcohol, and tobacco resistance; exercise behaviors; personal safety; and resilience. The California Healthy Kids Survey, a 59-item youth health risk and resilience evaluation instrument, was used to assess five key areas of health behavior. A quasi-experimental design was utilized with a sample of convenience of fifth grade students from five public school districts in Northwest Arkansas. Three schools served as the experimental group (n = 134) and two served as the comparison group (n = 140). The findings indicated that students who participated in KFH in grades kindergarten through third reported performing significantly more positive health behaviors related to exercise and personal safety and were more resilient than comparison students. No significant differences were found between the groups for dieting behaviors and drug, alcohol, and tobacco resistance, however, scores were more favorable for the experimental group for these behaviors. Findings of the study supported the assumptions that (1) the experiential learning pedagogical model is an effective tool for delivering comprehensive health education curricula to elementary-age students, and (2) increasing levels of health knowledge during the earliest years of elementary school promotes the development of more health-promoting behaviors in later years..
