Health Risks: Taking Control
Sunscreen? Helmet? Tie your shoelaces? A focus on everyday life skills dominates this seminar. Students are challenged to identify and explore common behaviors that can put their health at risk. Next, students research and brainstorm, finding easy and effective way to control their personal health risks. Rooted in SMA’s belief in holistic education and student empowerment, this seminar helps children play an active role in managing their health.

This approach of education and empowerment sets the stage for seventh-grade seminars about risks associated with alcohol, vaping, and other drugs.
