The “Substance Use and Addictions, and Related Behaviours” activity packet is designed to meet the curriculum expectations for the 2015 Ontario Grade 4 Health curriculum. This packet has students:
- Identify substances found in tobacco products and smoke and describe their effects on health;
- Demonstrate the ability to make and support healthy, informed choices about smoking, using their understanding of factors that affect decisions about smoking and a variety of personal and interpersonal skills and thinking processes;
- Describe the short- and long-term effects of first- and second-hand smoke on smokers and on people around them;
This packet includes lesson plans and worksheets as well as readings that help students to understand what tobacco is, how it is used and what the effects of first and second hand smoke are. This packet is designed to provide students with information about smoking and give them the tools that they need in order to make a healthy and informed decision.
