Ways to Get Involved

Mind Your Medicine

For Years 3 - 4

Using a fun game show format, Mind You Medicine develops students' understanding of medicines and their safe use, positive communication, strategies for managing conflict and how feelings influence the choices that we make.


In this module, students investigate medicines: how they work in the body, how to stay safe and who to go to for help and advice. Peer pressure and influences to make unsafe choices are also explored and assertive behaviour and communication skills are practiced. The key learning areas covered include:
  • Identifying and classifying medical drugs (prescription / non-prescription) and the different ways they enter the body
  • Identifying how medical drugs can be used safely
  • Understanding how medical drugs work in the body
  • Techniques for effective and assertive communication
This is the core part of the program. If you have booked a visit with Life Ed, this will be delivered in the Mobile Learning Centre or in your classroom by a specialist Life Ed Ed.
