The Dangers of Smoking – Everything you need is right here including the lesson (student and teacher versions), 3 embedded videos and a student lesson handout. The lesson first asks what smoking is and where tobacco comes from. It then explains what cigarettes are and why smoking is so bad for you as well as the health effects of secondhand smoke. It ends by looking at what makes smoking so addictive, why it can be so difficult to quit and what E-Cigarettes are.
Inside the lesson package you’ll find:
– The teacher version of the power point
– The student version of the power point
– 3 embedded videos
– Student lesson handout
In order, the lesson covers:
– What is smoking
– Where does tobacco come from?
– What are cigarettes?
– Why is smoking bad for you?
– The health effects of secondhand smoke
– What makes it so addictive?
– Why is it so difficult to quit smoking?
The student version of the power point contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.
