Fitness in the Classroom
Fitness in the Classroom

Research shows that when students are active their brain is ready to process information. In this 30 minute interactive lesson, IAK Health Educators will give teachers and students the opportunity to learn and move at the same time. All activities are based in subjects such as Math, Spelling, Reading, and Science. These activities give students a chance to get up and get moving while putting their brain to work. Combining movement to learning, this lesson is fun and beneficial all at the same time.

No matter how many times we tell kids NOT to do drugs, the reality is, they are going to make their own decisions. This class is designed to teach the students how their heart works and how important it is for continued life and health and what effect drugs can have on their heart. Throughout the lesson, the students are reminded that they don’t need drugs to survive and they need to think about what could happen to their heart if they use drugs. A real cow’s heart is used in the discussion. This presentation is 45-55 minutes long.

Bully Prevention Resources
Bully Prevention Resources

It’s All About Kids (IAK) is able to provide resources or curriculum for your school's staff to utilize upon request. We have found each school district has it's own policy regarding bullying, therefore, we do not provide bully prevention education.  IAK is partnering with the Tulsa Drillers to provide the Bully Busters Assembly!  For more information about the assembly contact Ashley Barnett.
