Developed by the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) in the United StatesArthur’s Guide to Media Literacy teaches children under the age of 10 about media literacy. Each lesson covers a different area of media literacy, including topics such as how unhealthy food is marketed to youth, the effect of media on body image, and advertising power and money. Each lesson stems from an Arthur episode, and provides teachers with lesson objectives, guided questions, activities, and possible homework extensions. Each lesson plan can be taught on its own, or be packaged together as part of a larger curriculum on media literacy.
