★★★★★ If you work with teens, these decision lessons are so powerful! You are able to cover multiple subjects in just a few days!

I consider this one of my BEST Health units since it deals with the consequences of teen decisions!

★NEW!★ I just added "Distance Learning Student Direction Google Slides" so students can completely do this 15-lesson 3 week unit at home! The slides walk them through each day of reading articles (which are posted in PDF on Google Docs) and follows up with reflections and art projects.

This is a fantastic way to cover SO MANY of teenagers' most dangerous activities and help them learn from others' tragic mistakes!

Your students will find this decision-making resource shocking, interesting, unbelievable, inspiring, and cautionary.

Save yourself HOURS of time looking for good articles!
