Sleep Recharges You: Educator Resources

Sleep is the power source that recharges students during the night so they can thrive during the day. Teachers, school nurses, counselors, and coaches can help us share the “Sleep Recharges You” message with children and teens. The American Academy of Sleep Medicine has compiled this collection of free lesson plans, classroom activities, and resources about sleep and health. Use these tools to help students understand the importance of sleep!
