What content informed this program?
Livestrong at School was developed in response to a growing need to offer school teachers tools and resources to talk about cancer in their classrooms in an age-appropriate and empowering manner.
Why Livestrong at School?
According to the National Cancer Institute (NCI), 25% of cancer survivors in the U.S. have at least one school-aged child at home. As a result, children in classrooms around the world are dealing with the disease right now, whether with a grandparent, parent, sibling, friend or teacher, and they need support both at home and in school.
Livestrong at School continues in classrooms across the country, and we encourage schools and teachers to bring this helpful and informative program to their students. Lessons include national standards, clear learning objectives, engaging videos, extension activities, a check for understanding, and ways that students can get involved in the fight against cancer. You can use of the free Livestrong at School Curriculum at any time.
