Product Description
How do teens best learn about the negative side effects of abusing illegal drugs and substances? Through sarcasm and shock value! Recent studies and anti-drug commercials have shown that when drug use is presented in a graphic, yet somewhat sarcastic manner, teens are less likely to abuse these substances. In this creative project, students will create a cereal box of a pretend drug cereal that displays the negative side effects of a selected substance. Students will not only be engaged in the process but they will learn about the physical and psychological toll of certain drugs.

Throughout the lesson/project, students will:

1) Respond to a Bell Ringer that asks students to consider out of three anti-drug commercials which one is the most effective.
2) Listen to an audio recording that demonstrates the recent trends of anti-drug commercials and their targeting of the teen population.
3) Select a harmful drug or substance to research and complete the rough draft of the cereal box project.
4) Construct the actual cereal box.
5) Present their findings to their peers during a fun, class wide presentation fair.
