    Elementary School

    The Protect Your Brain elementary 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.
