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. Misunderstanding can lead to teasing and bullying, which is associated with 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.

Ages 8-10
Ages 11-13
Acne lesson plans
Skin health lesson plans
Sun protection lesson plans
