Habits Lesson-★★★★ Cleansing Bad Habits and Creating Good Ones!

This can be a blessing and a curse! Help your students decide which bad habits to cleanse, which good ones to add, and then hold themselves accountable with a fill-in worksheet and check-off calendar to attain their goals.

★This lesson is taken directly from my Full Semester/Year High School Health Curriculum, which is the “#1 Best-Selling Health Curriculum” on the whole TPT website!

*****************************************************************

★Have you ever arrived in a room in your house with no memory of what you came to get?

★After your brain told you to get something, it knows it’s routine for you in your own house, so your mind started thinking of other things…

★This is the essence of habits - once you start on a familiar series of actions, you stop thinking about them, and you’re able to complete them without conscious thought or attention. The good side is that habits free up our minds from dull or repetitive tasks. The bad side is that bad habits can be difficult to stop once they’re started. THIS IS A CRITICAL MESSAGE FOR TEENS!

*****************************************************************

Here is What is Included in this Resource:

-32 pages of teacher directions that tell you what to say!

-A 45-Slide PowerPoint (Editable) to walk you through each lesson

Here Are the Daily Activities:

(These lessons are stand-alone lessons. Teach one or both)

Day 1:

1. First, students learn how the brain sets up pathways to help us process information.

2. Next, students take a "Habits Survey" with 100 habits!

3. Next there is a video that perfectly explains habits and will help your students fill out the worksheets!

4. Last, students set their own goals using the worksheets provided

5. There is also an optional fun "Support Your Peers" Habits Calendar

Day 2:

1. Students learn that the brain receives input from dopamine (Neurons begin to associate rewards with a particular thought, or action. Our brain says “Yes” to pleasure, and “No” to pain. People often turn to food, drugs, or alcohol to feel good or to not feel bad (and can then become "trapped" in addiction).

2. Students watch a video clip on how the brain handles the drug "Methamphetamine"

3. Students go through a "Neurotransmitter Handout"

4. Students take an anonymous “Drug Addiction Survey” to determine if they (or someone they know) has a drug addiction. Treatment resources are included.

5. Next, there is a “Dying for a Drug Fix” True Story article to read outloud to your class

6. Last, there is a fun "Teen Progression Drug Story” Activity – Students will write their own story about a teen who goes through the stages of addiction

7. When students finish their stories, they love to share them with classmates!
