Sunshine helps our bodies make Vitamin D for
strong bones. But overexposure to damaging
ultraviolet rays during childhood and adolescence is the major cause of skin cancer and
premature skin aging later in life. Students
must learn to care for their skin while they
are young. The most dangerous sun rays come
between 10am-4pm, whether the day is cloudy

or sunny. Children with darker skin tones
have some natural protection from these rays,
but all youngsters are vulnerable since any
tanning or burning causes skin damage. The
“Slip-Slop-Slap It On!” jingle is a novel way to
help students remember important sun safety
facts. Remind students to share the related
newsletter story with parents.

(2) “Sun Protection for Children,” American Academy of Dermatology. http://www.aad.org/public/publications
Procedure:
Discuss key points with your students. Then lead them in acting
out the “Slip-Slop-Slap It On!” memory device.
* This year we have been talking about keeping our heart and our teeth healthy,
eating healthy food, and being active. But did you know that our skin is another
important body organ? What is our skin used for? (To grow and hold hair, cool the body
by sweating, warm the body by raising the hairs on it to keep the warm air next to our skin,
protect the inside of the body from bacteria and germs)
* Let’s review the five senses (Hearing, sight, taste, smell, touch). What sense does
our skin have? (touch) What does our skin tell us when it is touched? (Many little
nerve endings in our skin tell our brain if it is hot, cold, soft, hard, wet, etc.)
* We need to keep our skin healthy, especially in the summer when we are outside.
These three important words will help you remember:
SLIP—on a cotton shirt, pants and shoes on sunny or cloudy days between
10am and 4pm. (Have students bend to touch the floor with their hands, then come up as
if pulling on their pants and slipping on a shirt)
SLOP—on sunscreen (15 SPF or higher). Put it on 30-45 minutes before
going outdoors, and put it on again every 45 minutes. (Students pretend to slather
sunscreen on their arms, legs, and face)

puts on all items and takes them off to give to the next student. The team that finishes
taking on and off all sun-related items first wins.

SLAP—on a hat with a brim to protect the head and skin on your ears and
face, where it can burn easily. (Students pat their heads as though putting on a hat)
Practice each action until students can do each one. Say the words in order speeding
up each time. Then try saying the words out of order to encourage students to listen
closely and correct you. This can be used as a 5-minute fidget buster.
