Lessons for Grades 9-12

Welcome to LIVESTRONG at School™! Created by Scholastic and the LIVESTRONG Foundation, the LIVESTRONG at School program uses national standards-based lessons to teach your students about the realities of cancer and supporting cancer survivors. While it is a difficult subject to address in the classroom, the LIVESTRONG Foundation believes that it is important for students to understand what cancer is and how it can be treated. In addition, this program informs your students about ways that they can make a difference and help those with cancer. The lessons and printable worksheets below make it easy for you to share this valuable information with your class.

For assistance with talking to your students about getting involved and participating in the fight against cancer, download Get Involved today.
