Elementary School Resources
for Body Confidence
About the Program
The Dove Self-Esteem Project and Discovery Education have teamed up to deliver the best in social and emotional learning (SEL), health, and confidence-building resources for educators teaching grades 4-5. We believe a confident student makes a happy, healthy, and successful student, which is why we have created a suite of classroom and family resources focused on building self-esteem, promoting positive body image, and countering bullying.Learn More
Body Positivity Virtual Field Trip
Each of us is unique, beautiful, and worth celebrating, but too often, things like appearance ideals, negative body image, and weight-based bullying get in the way of us appreciating our awesome selves. Students will hear from familiar characters from Cartoon Network's Steven Universe, as well as from their peers, as we explore how to be kinder to themselves and each other. They’ll learn to appreciate their bodies, get smarter about images they see online, and build strategies to fight weight-based bullying and teasing.
