The Donate Life Kentucky partnership is bringing its in-person program, Life is Cool, to an online platform for Kentucky fourth-grade students.
Teachers will be able to register their class for the online program without disclosing student information and will have access to resources housed on the site as well. These resources include a digital teaching manual complete with topics for discussion, support materials for 10 teaching sessions, videos that complete each lesson, and a grade book that keeps track of student progress.
The Life is Cool program meets state-approved curriculum standards for topics such as organs, tissues, blood, corneas, and the importance of making healthy choices. The program is free to all teachers and parents.
The program moved to the online platform due to the pandemic so that students would still have a way to experience this educational program. The interactive, virtual program will provide even more students the memorable experience while helping them understand at an early age how organs can be used to help save lives.
