Media Smart’s body confidence lesson plan for primary school teachers

The Media Smart Body Image lesson was launched in September 2011 and was developed to align with the Government's Body Confidence campaign. The aim of the one hour lesson is to provide an introduction to the role of the media and advertising in influencing young people's perceptions of body image.

Developed for 10-11 year olds, the Media Smart Body Image lesson highlights techniques used in post-production and examples of positive body image campaigns to help children think critically about the images they are seeing.
