Penguin Outwits Fox in
New K-3 Drug Program!
The Tuckertown Program makes children in the primary grades aware of the
drug menace. It is presented in one week-- a story a day for five days.
The stories are read by the teacher and require approximately seven
minutes to complete. But extra time should be allowed for discussion. The following
overview gives prospective users a quick preview before downloading the entire
program. Coloring pages, discussion questions, and suggested follow up exercises are
included along with the complete text for each story in the downloading section. Please
note that downloading the program does not include the standup characters which we
consider important to the program. To purchase these standup characters please E-mail us.
One week before the program begins; prepare children with the "Letter from Mrs.
Wilson" asking if the animals can visit.
