ThinkFirst for Youth! (National Injury Prevention Foundation)

Description:

ThinkFirst for Youth is for students in grades four through eight - an important time to help students learn the importance of protecting themselves, as they are increasingly faced with decision-making challenges involving their safety. Anatomy lessons and classroom activities help students develop a practical understanding of their body's abilities, limitations and vulnerablilty for injuries. Exercises build communication and conflict resolution skills, increasing self confidence and the ability to make safe choices when on their own or in the face of peer pressure.
