Teach others how you manage risks

So many good choices, so much time... It's your life, so choose wisely and help teach others to also make good choices!

Here's a list of a lot things that you can do to manage risks. Take a look at the list and pick something on it to draw that you'd like to teach others about, or come up with your own idea. You can see examples of pictures and essays (these have the letter e in front) by clicking on the numbers in red at the ends of some of the items. If you want to see what happens when a whole class gets involved, then please check out the page that features the paintings done by students of Visual Arts Educator Ms. Linda Hatch, Muriel S. Snowden International School at Copley, who challenged her art students to create pictures in the style of artist Keith Haring (teachers can find a lesson plan that appears on Haring Kids). Dr. Thompson featured all of the original paintings at the first Kids Risk Symposium and she included the picture painted by Mei Xian Zheng in her article "Children are our present," which appeared on the Op Ed page of The New York Times on the December 26, 2003 in ad space donated by ExxonMobil. You can also see the drawings done by students who participated in an afterschool activity led by school nurse Jennifer T. Grace, RN, at the Beebe School in Malden, MA. Please consider opportunities to share any creations.
