The BAM! Body and Mind website is for tweens (kids 9–12 years old), their parents, and their teachers. BAM! has information on health topics such as how the body fights diseases and how certain foods give kids more energy to exercise and play. BAM! gives tweens the information they need to make healthy lifestyle choices.
The BAM! has an “Ask a Scientist” comic series. These comics teach kids about how the immune system defends the body against disease (and introduce new vocabulary words) and protect their hearing using cool illustrations, vibrant colors, and exciting stories set in the worlds of fantasy and science fiction.
The BAM! Sun Safety page has information for kids on the importance and correct way to protect themselves from the sun and skin cancer. Kids can get the science behind the sun and UV rays, sunburns, how to prevent sunburns, what to do if they get one, and more. Learning good sun safety habits early on is important for lifelong practice.
Find health information, classroom materials, games, quizzes, and more for ages 9-12, their parents, and teachers.
Remember, healthy students are better learners! Introduce kids to the BAM! website today and help them get a head start on a lifetime of healthy behaviors.
