This research project assignment gets students engaged in learning about the dangers of drugs, and helps them to learn how to find valid sources and use the internet to research relevant topics.

1. If you want to review the different drug categories, I've included 40 PowerPoint slides from the category sections of my Drug Unit PowerPoint.

2. You can allow students to select the drug they want to research, or you can print one set of the Drug Choices sheet, cut it up, put it in a paper bag and have students draw for the drug they will need to research. It's up to you.

3. Students will need at least one day, and possibly two days in the computer lab if you want to do this project at school. It also works well as homework. Or, if you don'tt have access to a lab, you can print articles in each category of drugs and have them in your room so students can do research by looking at your articles.

4. I often have students do a poster of the drug they researched. Or, you could have them follow-up with a brochure. I included the Drug Brochure instructions and example if you want to have them do this follow-up project.

Included in both Word and PDF formats.

TOP 10 “FAVORITE LESSONS” SERIES: {Click on the description below}

In my 17 years of teaching Health and designing hundreds of lessons, these are my top 10 favorite lessons. First, I love teaching them because they present powerful, and valuable lessons for teens; and second, they’re favorites because they’re engaging and students have fun while they learn.

1. Food Label Scavenger Hunt. This lesson is my #1 seller. After students have read 42 food labels, they totally understand how to decipher the information on any food label!

2. Life Stories Project. The 3-Day project will have your students learning to embrace the hardships that make up their life stories, and sharing personal experiences they might not have otherwise talked about.

3. Alcohol Refusal Skills. This lessons starts with an interactive PowerPoint quiz on “Peer Pressure Lines,” continues with a true story about a dad who allowed his son to have an alcohol party in their basement, and ends with small group role-plays. Very powerful!

4. Fat and Sugar Nutrition Lab: Turn your classroom into a science lab to show your students the fat and sugar in 15 different products. Products sheets are included.

5. Dangerous Decisions Activity. Help Teens Realize the Consequences of 14 different risky behaviors they may be tempted by.

6. “Intervention” Addiction Lesson. Using “Intervention” T.V. Show to teach your students about addiction and treatment. Very powerful. This lesson teaches itself!

7. Nutrition Media Literacy. Have fun showing your students how food manufacturers manipulate us to buy their products. Kids will be surprised by what they learn.

8. Narcotics Dangers “Pharm Parties“ Lesson. Simulate a “Pharmaceutical Party” and help your student understand the dangers of narcotics, including prescription pills.

9. Fast Food Lesson. Help students analyze healthy versus unhealthy fast food restaurant choices.
