Good Skin Knowledge lesson plans and activities


Good Skin Knowledge lesson plan library

Welcome to the American Academy of Dermatology’s youth education campaign, Good Skin Knowledge. The goal is to teach young people the facts about common skin, hair, and nail conditions in order to prevent misunderstanding that can lead to teasing and bullying, which can cause anxiety and depression. 

These lesson plans and accompanying handouts are designed to be easily implemented in a variety of settings for the two age groups of 8-10 year olds and 11-13 year olds.

Each subject area has various subtopics from which to choose, with a lesson plan and coordinated activity. When you click on the subtopic, you will have the option to access the materials two ways:  the collapsible icons will take you through the flow of each lesson step by step, including the activities with handouts.  Alternatively, you can preview each printout in the window on the right of the page.
