I created this unit with Sports Medicine based classes in mind, however, it could be used in any areas that need to cover basic injuries. The unit comes with an opening game, lecture presentation and several activities and worksheets. Below lists each of the items included:
WANNA BET GAME (PPT with PDF optional handout for Students)
I begin this lesson with the “Wanna Bet” Game. I use it as a hook for the unit. The instructions for how to play are listed on one of the slides and it comes with an optional student handout (3 versions). It’s basically just a fun, interactive way to get students interested in the subject while learning a few stats and facts along the way. It is set up like a quiz show game where students will bet tokens based on their confidence in their answers. Full instructions included on how to play.

GENERAL INJURIES PRESENTATION (PPT or Google Slides Option with PDF Student Notes Pages- printable or fillable)
This Presentation comes as either an editable PPT or Google Slides and covers the following topics:
· mechanisms of injury
· stages of wound healing
· types of wounds
· description, image and treatment for the following injuries: abrasions, lacerations, incisions, avulsions, puncture wounds, amputations, contusions, hematomas, strains, sprains, tendonitis, bursitis, concussions, spinal cord injuries, heat stroke and heat exhaustion
· stages of bruising

· stages of bone healing
· classification of fractures (open, closed, stable and displaced)

· thermal response to activity
The PowerPoint does come with an optional student notes handout that can be printed or filled in electronically.
MECHANISMS OF INJURY WORKSHEET (PDF- Answer Key included)
This is just a short worksheet going over examples of direct, indirect or overuse injuries. I felt like it was a good way for students to get a real understanding. There is an option to print or fill in electronically as well as an answer key.
INJURY CROSSWORD (PDF- Printable or fillable)
I like to change the wording of definitions of terms we learn in class to help with full comprehension. This is just a simple crossword with all of the injuries for them to practice learning. You can use it as a warm-up for that day, homework or an in-class assignment.
NAME THAT INJURY GAME (PPT with optional PDF student handout)
It’s one thing to see illustrations of injuries, but another to see the real photos. This is just a way to review the injuries be seeing real examples, as well as some “bonus” questions to see if they remembered facts from the PowerPoint lecture. It comes with a PowerPoint and an optional student fill in worksheet (both printable and fillable) as well as an Answer Key
BREAK IT DOWN GAME (PowerPoint OR Google Forms Options with optional student PDF handout)
Just like the injuries from the above game, it’s important that students see more than just illustrations of fractures. This game goes through all of the fracture types and then has the students determine the type, simple/compound, and fixed/displaced. It’s a great way to review the fracture types as well as the characteristics. It comes with the option to play it together as a class using the PowerPoint an optional fill in sheet for the students (both printable or fillable) OR the option to play it using Google Forms. The link to that is below. It is also set up to force you to make a copy so again the original stays unedited.
