Lesson activities require students to pay attention, listen carefully, sequence plot, draw and color, work with others, research, speak, present, and be creative. You can cover the topic in a lesson for an hour or spend several days doing the follow-up activities that challenge students to not only reflect on whom to trust but also to apply their knowledge to other important life skills. A letter to the parent asking permission for the child to attend the lesson is included if your school requires parent approval, and there is a follow-up letter explaining the topic and encouraging parents to further discuss the issue with their children in more detail. There really is so much to choose from!
Though the Common Core Curriculum is aligned to first grade for this lesson booklet, these lessons can easily be adapted to pre-k and elementary classrooms as well as guidance, health, and P.E. These lesson plans accompany Joey Wants to Know, a children's book that teaches inappropriate touch and what to do if it happens in a child-friendly, non-threatening way using adorable characters. This is an easy way to teach the difficult topic of good and bad touch. It helps protect children from child abuse while accomplishing curriculum!
