Exam stress lesson plan and PowerPoint
In this lesson from Public Health England, students will develop helpful strategies for managing their own exam stress and learn how to be supportive of friends who may also be experiencing stress.
In this lesson, students identify the signs and symptoms of exam stress and recognise that it can affect young people before, during or after an exam.
Using the concept of designing an ‘Exam Buddy’ app to help them, students develop helpful strategies in order to manage their own exam stress and be supportive of friends who may also be experiencing stress.
