Elementary Health Education

  • K-5 Students are enrolled in a Health Education Course at each grade level taught by the classroom teacher.  The lessons provided are specifically developed for Collier County Public School students by Collier County Public School Staff and are meant to support the instruction of the required standards and benchmarks for the course as outlined in CPALMS.  These standards and benchmarks are assessed by the Science teacher and entered as at least one Science Health Grade each quarter. These learning goals, standards, and benchmarks can be viewed in the attached documents below.   The district develops and provides approximately 10 (25-minute) lessons each quarter to help meet or exceed Florida Department of Education Health Education standards.
