Kids Boost Immunity (KBI) provides dozens of classroom activities and teacher resources developed by health and education professionals. Content is age-appropriate, linked to curriculum, and is available completely for free. Each lesson is paired with an online quiz that students can take on a laptop, tablet, or phone. Every time a student scores 80% or higher on a quiz, we donate life-saving vaccines to UNICEF Canada. To learn more about KBI, click here.
