TD ThinkFirst for Kids
TD ThinkFirst For Kids is a school-based curriculum program for teachers and children in Grades K to 8.
Using lessons and fun activities, the program:
- is interactive and flexible
- allows teachers to focus on specific injury risks or general prevention units
- engages students in learning how to think first to prevent brain and spinal cord injuries, before participating in their favourite activities at home, school and play
- empowers kids to make safe decisions and teaches them how to navigate risks in their daily lives that could lead to injury
This program was developed by a multi-disciplinary team including teachers, curriculum experts, doctors, and neuroscientists. In 2007 this program received the Safe Communities Sean Kells Award for Community Safety.
We heard from kids about how they think first to prevent injury! Learn more about the I ThinkFirst Contest! and how you could win helmets for your entire classroom!
