Canadian Cancer Society’s SunSense program is designed to educate people of all ages about the dangers of the sun and to encourage people to follow the Society’s recommended SunSense Guidelines.
In order to keep participants thinking about sun safety past the single lesson, a SunSense UV bracelet will be part of the lesson plan. As a daily reminder of the presence of ultraviolet light and the importance of using their SunSense, participants will be asked to wear their bracelets throughout the summer to keep reminding them to be safe while they are in the sun.
It is recommended to keep the lesson plan to 20 minutes in order to keep the participants’ attention and focus. Additional activities are included in case you finish early.
At the end of the lesson plan, the participants will have learned:
- The importance of the sun
- The damaging effects of the sun
- What ultraviolet rays are and the properties they possess
- The SunSense Guidelines
