Health Rocks!®
Healthy Beginnings

At-home activities that parents can guide to help kids learn how to make empowered choices about their health.

About the Activities

Teens face a lot of challenges, including the pressure to do things that can harm their bodies – like smoking or vaping. Telling kids to just say no is one thing, but empowering them with information and resources is the best way to ensure they can make healthy choices, with confidence.

 

This series of three at-home activities will help solidify teens’ self confidence and give them the skills to do what they know is right in any situation.

 

Grades: 6-12
Topic: Health
Estimated Time: 1 hour
