Good Skin Knowledge: Lesson Plans and Activities

Skin health is important to overall well-being and self-confidence. On the page linked above, health educators will find more than 30 lesson plans designed to teach students ages 8-13 about healthy skin, hair, and nails. The lessons are part of the Good Skin Knowledge education campaign, which seeks to "teach young people the facts about common skin, hair, and nail conditions," and reduce the teasing, bullying, and anxiety that young children face as a result of misunderstandings about conditions such as acne, dandruff, eczema, and warts. The lessons are divided into 3 categories - acne, skin health, and sun protection - and the materials are distinct for each age group (Ages 8-10 and Ages 11-13). For instance, the lesson "Skin: Daily Habits" for the younger age group is a 30-minute lesson that covers the importance of showering and face washing. The lesson plan features introductory materials, interactive elements, and independent practice, including a worksheet that is available to download. The materials in these lessons were developed by the American Academy of Dermatology, an association of more than 20,000 physicians founded in 1938.
