Decision-Making Lessons for Any Middle or High Student: 3 Favorite Lessons.

These 3 lessons can be taught by anyone who wants to empower teens to make good decisions and be assertive enough to stand up to peer pressure!


In my 18 years of designing and teaching hundreds of Health lessons these are three of my very favorite top lessons, and they've been favorites with my students too.


Get lessons designed by a teacher, for teachers. There is nothing canned about these activities. All have been kid-tested, revised, improved, and perfected! I know you'll be so happy with them.


Sold separately these 3 lessons sell for $20.00-so that's more than a 20% off savings!!


Here are the lessons included:

1. Fat and Sugar Experiment: Help students resist the pressure to eat unhealthy by understanding nutrition facts!!

Set your room up like a science lab and see how students are shocked to see the sugar and fat in products. This also includes:

-a 91-slide Fat and Sugar PowerPoint that walks you step-by-step through the lesson and the fat and sugar experiment

-a 27-slide Obesity Slideshow made by the CDC of how each state ranks in obesity rates and how they've increased since 1985 (it's crazy!!)

-a 14-slide Portion Sizes PowerPoint to show the difference between a typical meal today and years ago

-"Calories Formula" Worksheet

-"Fat and Sugar Experiment" Worksheet and Reflection

-"Fat and Sugar Make up at Home" worksheet for any students absent on the day of the experiment

-"Sugar Homework"

2. Alcohol Refusal Role Plays: Should a dad let his 17-year old have a graduation party with a kegger in their basement? Use this true story about a family in Rhode Island to grab your students' interest in this alcohol refusal role-play lesson! Students learn alcohol dangers (besides drinking and driving,), how to resist peer pressures, refusal skills and assertiveness is saying “No.” This also includes:

-a 43-slide PowerPoint with "Top 10 Peer Pressures Quiz" and step-by-step directions to walk you thought the "Alcohol Role Plays" lesson

-"Alcohol Role-Plays Observation Sheet"

-Follow-up "Alcohol Decision-making Worksheet"

-Drink Safety Tips Handout/Activity

3. Resisting Sexual Pressures: This lesson teaches students the importance of coming up with assertive refusal lines to sexual pressures. My students have fun designing these assertive, sassy flip charts! This also includes:

-a 20-slide PowerPoint to walk you through the lesson and also show your students real-life poster examples

-"Sexual Pressures Flip Chart" handout

-"Flip Chart" generic computer lab option

-"Sexual Assault True-False Quiz"

-"Sexual Pressures True Stories" to read outloud to your students
