Primary School Resources

Allergy Awareness Resource for Primary Years

Teacher Resource

This resource for Primary school years is designed to provide educators with information for teaching Year K-6 students what allergies are and how to help friends who have them, including being able to recognise a severe allergic reaction (anaphylaxis) and act appropriately when it occurs.

The interactive activities in this resource have been designed to be used as part of the school’s Health and Physical Education and Technology and Enterprise (Home Economics) programs. It uses a range of appropriate learning and teaching styles and provides clear, planned curriculum opportunities for students to understand and explore areas linked to allergy safety education. The parent information sheets also promote a whole school approach to students’ learning.
