Welcome to the Teacher Toolkit!
Noisy Planet’s Teacher Toolkit will help you teach preteens about the causes and prevention of noise-induced hearing loss. It provides easy-to-use resources and step-by-step instructions for fun activities.
This toolkit builds on the success of classroom presentations conducted by the Noisy Planet team at schools within the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area, and offers key resources and tools to teachers, school nurses, and other educators across the country.
