The Tool Kit consists of a variety of fun, developmentally appropriate activities that combine education about sun protection and the environment with other aspects of learning.

The kit includes activities focusing on:

In addition to the lessons, the kit provides a UV sensitive frisbee, a comic book On the Trail of the Missing Ozone, and to award participation, we provide an easily photocopied Certificate of SunWisdom.

Distribution Policy

The SunWise Program's goal is to help as many people as we can achieve sun safe behavior. Due to the growing popularity of the Program and increasing production costs, as well as to increase ease of use for educators, we have moved from distributing hard copies of our educational Tool Kit to a CD-ROM format. We have received feedback that the CD-ROM format is preferable. Limited hard copies are available if an educator is unable to use a CD-ROM format.

We encourage the Tool Kits to be placed in a central location within a school, such as the library or media center, where teachers can share and make copies of the materials (particularly if your school has received a hard copy Tool Kit). More than one teacher in a school may request to receive a CD-ROM, especially if the student population is large, and/or multiple classes or grade levels are participating.

Contact the SunWise Web editor to ask a question, provide feedback, or report a problem.
