NIAMS Kids Pages

If you are looking for ways to teach kids about health, this site from the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS) could come in very handy. The information provided here is drawn from the vast stores of constantly updated research programs from around the world. Thankfully, the site does a good job of making all that information accessible, applicable, and even fun. Four categories - Healthy Muscles Matter, Healthy Skin Matters, Healthy Joints Matter, and Healthy Bones Matter - appear on the homepage. These sections then open to articles with excellent visuals, approachable content, and short quizzes. For instance, the section on muscles outlines the basic facts and then makes clear suggestions, such as the importance of getting at least 60 minutes of exercise per day. The information for each category is available in PDF format, which makes for handy teaching aids.
