ThinkFirst encourages safe behavior by teaching students about the brain and spinal cord and addressing activities that are commonly associated with traumatic injury.

ThinkFirst for Kids is a comprehensive, interactive safety curriculum for third grade students. Trained educators teach six one-hour lessons in the classroom about the following safety topics:

  • Anatomy of the brain
  • Car and pedestrian safety
  • Water and diving safety
  • Gun safety and violence prevention
  • Sports and recreational safety
  • Bike safety and helmet use

This award-winning program offers schools an evidence-based course which can be used as a component to meet health and safety standards in a fun and memorable way.

Memorial educators may provide helmets to encourage students to apply what
they’ve learned.
