★★★★★ This Common Core aligned stress unit will make these difficult topics easy to teach and will be impacting for your students…They’ll love all the surveys and engaging lessons.

Through discussions, reflective surveys, and hands-on activities this engaging unit helps students understand the importance of sleep, how to recognize Clinical Depression, how to deal with thoughts of suicide, and how to relieve stress for life.

-Everyone feels stressed out at times — adults, teens, and kids. But it’s also possible to learn skills to avoid getting too stressed out by handling everyday pressures and problems. These lessons help students learn how to relieve stress with taking time out for things they enjoy, by getting exercise and being active, and by reaching out to others.  This unit also promotes staying calm, and asking for help when you need it.

  • Here is more about this unit:

 

-Unfortunately teen depression is often seen as a normal teenage “phase” of life and consequently, it’s not diagnosed or treated.

 

-This unit stresses that suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem and it leaves devastation for loved ones in its wake, and what to do if a friend is talking about suicide, and more.

 

-The unit uses a “Depression Survey,” PowerPoint slides, and activities to help your students understand and possibly recognize the symptoms of stress and depression.

 

-Students will learn that Clinical Depression is treatable and that help is available!

 

-NEW!★ I just finished an amazing update. There are now all-new photos on the Stress PowerPoint and several worksheets; AND besides the High School Stress lessons, I added the complete Stress Units from each of the 3 Middle/Jr. High School grade levels(See specifics activities listed below.)
