Elementary School Toolkit


The Protect Your Brain middle school toolkit for school professionals will help you prepare and deliver a presentation on brain injury prevention for elementary school students. It is intended to be used by teachers, school nurses, interested school professionals, and prevention partners to educate Connecticut children on the importance of protecting their brain and how they can prevent brain injury. The presentations can be given in a variety of settings, from assemblies to classroom discussions, and through PowerPoint presentations that include an interactive game component or activities in small groups. You know your students and school best, so we have provided a variety of ways to include this information in your school.

This toolkit was developed by the Brain Injury Alliance of Connecticut, and covers topics including functions of the brain, effects of brain injury, incidence of brain injury in children, and strategies to reduce brain injury through seat belt use, learning safety in the car, helmet safety, bicycle safety, pedestrian safety, and concussion awareness.  Two toolkits are available for elementary schools with one geared towards students in grades kindergarten through 2nd grade, and the other geared towards students in grades 3-5.
