Grade 1-3 resources

The TD Think First For Kids Program aims to foster safety conscious habit formation and behavioural change in students, in order to promote life-long injury prevention awareness. The Grade 1, 2 and 3 materials introduce students to key biology concepts, such as brain and spinal cord anatomy.  This is used as foundation for activities and lessons on injury topics like sport and recreational safety. The program will encourage creative problem solving in discussions of these important topics.
