Going to the Doctor

Subject Area

Health Education




This free resource from KidsHealth is informational material on going to the doctor.  The resource contains links to videos and interactives for additional information. Students learn going to the doctor is a chance for the doctor to see that they are growing and developing normally. It's also a chance for their parents to talk with the doctor about any issues, such as safety or nutrition, so they can help them stay healthy.

And going to the doctor gives students a chance to ask any questions they might have about their health.  Students might wonder when they will grow taller for instance, or if they weigh the right amount.

This alignment results from the ALEX Health/PE COS Resource Alignment Summit.
