Life is Cool!

What We Do

A Free Program for Kentucky Fourth Graders

What is Life is Cool? It is a FREE program for Kentucky 4th graders and a state approved curriculum on organs, tissues, eyes and blood and the importance of healthy life choices. Students participate in five one hour classroom lessons and then enjoy a hands-on event that includes 10 different learning stations staffed by healthcare personnel and volunteers from across Kentucky.

Each participating teacher receives a digital teaching guide complete with power-point presentation, handouts and support materials for the five teaching sessions. Each student is provided a workbook to go along with the teaching sessions. All of this is provided at no cost to the school or student. The program finale is the on-site Life Is Cool learning fair that students, teachers and volunteers won’t soon forget!

The Life is Cool program can include multiple schools in a district with students bused to a suitable school or other location for the on-site learning event.
