Think your students are too young to face cancer? http://bit.ly/Wgk6aE Think your students are too young to face cancer? Think again.
With one in three people in the U.S. facing a cancer diagnosis in their lifetime, children in classrooms everywhere are likely to be dealing with cancer right now—with a grandparent, parent, family member, friend or teacher.
Research shows that 25 percent of cancer survivors in the U.S. have school-aged children. Also, siblings of children with cancer report that the support they receive at school is just as important as the support they receive at home. Help your students cope with and learn about cancer.
The LIVESTRONG at School curriculum offers online lessons for grades K–12 to help you teach your students about cancer in a way that is age-appropriate, inspiring and empowering.

Death And Loss: Helping Children Manage http://teacher.scholastic.com/professional/bruceperry/death_and_loss.htm Death And Loss: Helping Children Manage Their Grief
The loss of a loved one is like an earthquake that fractures our emotional landscape. Although death is the most permanent loss we face, there are other forms of loss that can be devastating as well. The most common for children are moving and divorce. When adults decide to move or separate, usually after anticipating and gradually adjusting to the transition, children have no choice but to accept their decision.
Since children have less time and fewer skills to help them adjust to these situations, they are more vulnerable to loss than adults.
