This lesson focused on how children with food allergies being bullied is not a laughing matter and the need to raise awareness.  Students learned what is an allergic reaction.  This lesson was an important lesson because it helps students to understand that allergies can be a life threatening and it's not just fun and games when children are taunted and teased.  The lesson was eye-opening to many students because they said they did not realize that people can die from food allergies.
