"I Spy" Game

(NOTE: While this game was designed primarily for use at home, this activity could also be played during any field trip for your class.)

Take your sun smarts into the field and see what you and your child/student can find! Before your next walk, drive, or field trip, print this page. Then take it with you and check off what you see. Talk about why each item is important to staying safe in the sun. Keep your eyes peeled for any unsafe sun behavior too!

[ ] One person wearing sun-protective clothing
[ ] One place where people should watch out for the sun while they have fun
[ ] One outdoor place that is well protected from the sun
[ ] One watch or clock set to one of the worst times of day to be out in the sun
[ ] One weather report that includes the UV index
[ ] One product with sunscreen in it

Bonus: Find a place that most people wouldn't think of as risky, but where they should still block the sun, not the fun!

Sunny Day Tips
Knowing how to protect yourself from the sun is as easy as
1, 2, 3!
  1. Wear sunscreen of at least SPF 30. Remember to reapply often.
  2. Wear sun-protective clothing, including hats with wide brims and tightly woven shirts.
  3. Stand in the shade. Remember that trees provide great natural shade.
