Terrific Teachable Moments for Families

Little lessons in the moment help children learn.

As a parent, childcare provider, teacher, or youth mentor, wouldn’t it be nice to have a simple resource at your fingertips that let you encourage or discourage specific behaviors right when they occur? The Terrific Teachable Moments app is just that – a helpful teaching tool you can download and access immediately from your smart device whenever a teachable situation arises.

The app includes over 150 activity-based mini lessons, and each can be completed in under 10 minutes. Lessons are built on the 4-H Youth Development framework of experiential learning that leads kids to participate in a short activity, reflect on the experience, and apply what they learn by connecting it to real-life situations.

Every family is unique! Find the right lesson that fits your family within one of four, age-appropriate lesson groups included in the TTM app download.
