This study was to develop the health education program model of young children based on e-book using QR code to prevent and manage fine dust. We developed program to prevent and manage fine dust for young children' health through in-depth discussions with 2 young children's health experts and 3 young children education experts, and developed the e-book using QR code. The program model for fine dust's prevention education based on e-book using QR code was verified for suitability as a field adaptation and teaching medium for 5-year old. The results of this study are as follows: First, the program model for fine dust's prevention education based on e-book using QR code was developed through 3 stages of appreciation activity-central activity-finishing activity. Second, the e-book using QR code is a useful teaching medium applicable to fine dust's prevention education program. In conclusion, the e-book-based fine dust's prevention education program using QR code will be used as an appropriate education method for fine dust's prevention and health management activities in the field of education for young children.
