This guide is organized around a suggested list of health skills that all students should know and be able to do at each grade level from kindergarten through grade 6. The guide will help provide parents, teachers, and students with knowledge of what is being taught in a logical scope and sequence by grade level. It is designed to help build a basis for curriculum development, instructional strategy, and assessment practices and provide consistency across the state of Idaho in what is being taught and learned. The skills are identified by grade level starting at kindergarten and progressing through grade 6. The skills were selected based on the knowledge of many classroom teachers, skills identified in textbook scope and sequence charts, skills measured on the Iowa Test of Basic Skills, skills measured on Idaho's direct assessments, and input from educators, patrons, and parents. There are three processes that a teacher takes the student through for each skill. Once the student achieves the skill, there are three thinking levels for determining how to use it (factual, applied/analysis, and synthesis). The teacher can develop an assessment to measure the skill. (SM)
