Lesson 8: Responding to Injuries


Students identify body signals that let them know they’ve been injured. They describe some common childhood injuries, including cuts and scratches, sprains, insect bites and burns, including sunburn. They discuss the importance of telling the teacher if they or classmates are injured at school, and take home a family sheet to help them talk with parents or other adult family members about being sick or hurt.

  1. Identify different signals from the body that can help them recognize an injury.
