One Pair of Eyes

Middle and High School Curriculum

One-third of all eye injuries in the U.S. happen to children, but a full 90% are PREVENTABLE! One Pair of Eyes© was developed by Prevent Blindness and Nationwide Children's Hospital to positively affect Ohio students’ attitudes towards the use of personal eye protection, and their ability to identify appropriate eye health and safety practices.

 

Lesson plans include a variety of teaching techniques and feature activities to drive home relevant eye safety messages to Ohio’s teens. Overview and review videos are included, as well as Substitute Teacher Plans. One Pair of Eyes® extension activities are perfect “blizzard bag” assignments – everything is on-line!
