Welcome to the Office of the State Superintendent of Education’s Health and Physical Education Booklist! This booklist contains annotations for close to 300 books for elementary (K – 5), middle (6 – 8), and high school (9 – 12) students on a variety of health topics, including but not limited to, mental and emotional health, safety skills, physical education and activity, the environment, food and nutrition, food cultures and customs, gardens and farms, alcohol and drug use, and personal and sexual health. Each book has been aligned to the 2016 DC Health Education Standards, the Common Core Standards, and the Next Generation Science Standards to facilitate their implementation into curricula. A brief description of each set of standards and where to find them can be found in appendix A.
