This experimental study was aimed at examining the effect of health promotion education on the presence of healthy behaviors, self-concept and level of anxiety in primary-school-age children. A total of 120 students were given one lesson a week for 10 weeks. Data collection tools used in the study were the Positive Health Behaviors Scale (Hester, 1984), the Piers-Harris Children's Self-Concept Scale (Piers & Harris, 1969), and the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (Spielberger, 1973). The health promotion education given to the children was found to have a significant effect on their healthy behaviors and state-trait anxiety level but not on their self-concept.
