Description: Cancer education school program. Includes children's book, PowerPoint and lesson guide. The program integrates cancer awareness and character education as children read about the emotional ups and downs faced by a family coping with cancer. Created by a cancer survivor, the lesson guide is designed to encourage dialogue as children study character traits used to battle cancer, such as courage, kindness, caring and perseverance. Despite the serious topic children will have fun comparing their own family with Tabitha's and doing activities inspired by the book, like a relay race to clean up a mess, and designing a wig. Program is also suitable for health care educators.
