Elementary Health & Physical Education Curriculum
The elementary physical education curriculum in the Central Bucks School District provides activities in ten strands to enable the students to develop a broad range of fundamental skills and experience varied movement activities. Students are encouraged to explore the space around them and are guided in ways to share this space safely with their classmates.The comprehensive elementary health education curriculum includes a variety of topics such as personal health, the human body, human growth and development, HIV and AIDS, nutrition, personal safety, and tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs. The goal of this health curriculum is not only to increase a student's health knowledge and to create positive attitudes toward his own well-being, but to also promote health behavior. Aligned with the Pennsylvania state standards, the health curriculum has been written and created by Central Bucks teachers and staff.
