Get Ready!

Meet some kids with allergies to food in this video: 
Younger Kids Talk: Food Allergy by The Center for Food Allergy and Asthma Research (CFAAR)

Listen to what the kids say about having food allergies, how others can help and being included.

After the videos, here are questions to think about:

    1. What are some of the foods that some of the kids said they were allergic to? 
    2. What are some of the things that happen when kids eat something they are allergic to?
    3. How can you help keep people with food allergies safe from what they are allergic to?  
    4. Accidents happen sometimes.  How can you help if someone thinks they are having a reaction to something they are allergic to?
    5. How can you help kids with food allergies feel included? 

Coming Up Next…your unit presentation will happen soon!

Can you think of questions you might have for the guest speaker?  We’ll see you soon!
