Elmer Vaccination Awareness Program
As we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, it is so important to provide well-researched, factual information to school-aged children in language they can understand. That’s why we’ve developed these free resources for use by teachers for their students. See below for a list of available materials and presentations.
Primary (grades 1-3)
Junior (grades 4-6)
Intermediate (grades 7-8)
As you may be aware, Elmer the Safety Elephant has a long history of helping with safety in schools. The Elmer Flag program is an in-class presentation that helps students understand critical safety practices about getting to and from school safely. The Elmer program touches on a wide array of safety topics, with other resources and messages provided that support student safety.
