KidsHealthKidsHealth is a website which contains health information, quizzes and videos to help children understand the human body and how to keep well.

KidsHealth in the Classroom offers educators free health-related lesson plans for PreK through 12th grade. Each Teacher’s Guide includes discussion questions, classroom activities and extensions, printable handouts, and quizzes and answer keys all aligned to National Health Education Standards.” (KidsHealth)

There are teacher guides for KS1 and KS2; however, the site also covers teens so all of it is not suitable for primary aged children. The teacher guides cover three areas: Human body, health problems and Personal Health.

The children’s area covers:

  • How the body works
  • Puberty and growing up
  • Staying Healthy
  • Staying safe
  • Recipes and cooking
  • Health problems
  • Illnesses and Injury
  • Relax and unwind
  • People, Places and things that help
  • Feelings
  • Expert Answers Q&A
  • Movies and More

In the “More” section there is a whole set of videos showing parts of the human body:

  • Bones and Skeletal System
  • Brain and Nervous system
  • Digestive System
  • Endocrine System
  • Heart and Circulatory System
  • Immune System
  • Muscular System
  • Urinary System

These are real, child friendly cartoons showing how things work.


KidsHealth also offers a pre-school page linked with Sesame Street Healthy Habits for Daily Life.
