dc.description.abstractThe goal of this study was to examine the relationship between awareness of obesity status and physical activity levels of students attending the 2nd grade of primary education. A total of 558 students studying in Van city center, 285 boys and 273 girls, participated in this study in the survey model. The study data were gathered using the "Physical Activity Questionnaire for Children (PAQC)", the "Obesity Awareness Scale", and "Personal Information Form". In the analysis of the study data, SPSS statistical package software was used for descriptive statistics, and as the data had normal distribution, ANOVA, t-test, and Pearson Correlation tests were used.There was a significant difference (p<0.05) between the students' income level, academic achievement, parent's occupation, parent's educationlevel, gender, age and physical activity levels. Physical activity levels in primary school students were found to have a positive and very significant relationship with obesity awareness (r=0.116, p=0.000). Furthermore, there was a positive and significant relationship between the PAQC score and the sub-dimensions of obesity (r=0.103, p=0.015), nutrition (r= 0.111, p=0.008), and physical activity (r = 0.095, p=0.024). As a result, students who consider their income level and academic success to be good are more likely physical activity levels. As the obesity awareness of the students increases, their physical activity levels increase.
