There’s a lot going on in our world right now. Understanding how viruses spread, how the body’s immune system works, and what vaccines are can help children and families feel safer in uncertain times.
Use our lesson plans to start open conversations, encourage curiosity about health and the body, and inspire discussions about what it means to feel safe.

Our lessons are designed for grades K-5 with the flexibility for you to decide how much depth is appropriate for your students. The activities themselves usually take about 5-10 minutes; full lessons might be 20+ minutes with lots of conversation!
