Lesson Plan

Concussions: Grades 9-12

Spread the word about concussions! After reading articles about concussions and sports safety, small groups create paper slide videos to educate their peers about concussions, their symptoms, long-term consequences, and how to protect against getting concussions. As a second activity, class members create trifold brochures they display about the school with information about baseline concussion tests and why it's important to get them.
