Fitness in the Classroom
Emergency Preparedness

Students learn about what a natural disaster is and the different types, why an emergency toolkit is important, and what to do if a natural disaster occurs.  Students participate in games that teach them what does and does not need to be in an emergency toolkit and the difference between a tornado watch and warning.  This lesson is great to celebration National Emergency Preparedness Month in September or anytime throughout the year! 


Teambuilding
Responsible Decision Making

Students will explore making healthy decisions.  The lesson involves teaching students about how to choose healthy food options, how to choose to be physically active, and how to make decisions for their personal health. Students discuss these topics and learn from their peers. 


Handwashing/Don't Bug Me (K-2nd)
Handwashing/Don’t Bug Me Assembly (K-2nd)

Human Growth & Development (5th)

Students are separated by boys and girls for this lesson.  We teach from P&G's Always Changing program.  Schools are able to request kits and pamphlets from P&G to send home with students after the lesson.  The videos used to teach the lesson can be viewed on the P&G School Programs website.  A pretest and 60-day post-test are required for this lesson. 


Tobacco Prevention (3rd-5th)
Tobacco & Vaping Prevention

Tobacco is one of the leading causes of death each year in Oklahoma. This lesson will inform students about the different types of tobacco, the various harmful chemicals in tobacco, vaping products, all of the harmful things these products do to the body, and gives students strategies to stay away from the products. This lesson focuses on helping students learn why tobacco and vaping are not healthy and how to stay tobacco and vape free.  For 4th grade students, a pretest and 60-day post-test are required for this lesson.


Drugs and Your Heart (5th - 6th)
Drugs and Your Heart Assembly (5th)

No matter how many times we tell kids NOT to do drugs, the reality is, they are going to make their own decisions. This assembly 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.


Dental Health (K, 1st, and 4th)
Dental Health

Students learn the proper way to keep their teeth clean and have a healthy mouth. Topics discussed during the lesson are proper brushing technique, proper flossing technique, and the chance to learn about cavities, plaque, and the functions of their teeth. This interactive lesson is a hands-on approach to good dental hygiene.  For 4th grade classes, a pretest and 60-day post-test are required for this lesson.

 

For kindergarten students, the Tooth Fairy’s Assistant comes to the classroom for a 20-30 minute presentation.
