What Are Grade Level Content Expectations?
The Michigan Health Education Content Expectations reflect legal requirements, best practices, and current research in the teaching and learning of health education. They build from the Michigan Health Education Standards and Benchmarks (1996) and the State Board of Education’s Policy on Comprehensive School Health Education (2004). The content expectations represent a vision for a relevant health education curriculum that addresses critical health knowledge and skills for successfully maintaining a healthy lifestyle during a child’s school years and beyond.

The Content Expectations are organized by strands.

  • Strand 1: Nutrition and Physical Activity

  • Strand 2: Alcohol, Tobacco, and Other Drugs

  • Strand 3: Safety

  • Strand 4: Social and Emotional Health

  • Strand 5: Personal Health and Wellness

  • Strand 6: HIV Prevention

  • Strand 7: Growth and Development

Within the five strands, the Expectations are aligned to the eight Health Content Standards.
