Red Ribbon Week is celebrated all around the country, usually the week of October 9th. It's a time for students to learn and reflect why it's so important to be drug free. This resource's focus is on teaching students what drugs are (including alcohol and cigarettes), how they negatively impact the body, how people can get addicted to drugs, and more! This is a sensitive topic, but this resource will make your drug free discussion a bit more relaxed with it's engaging photos, "keeping it real" impact, and reflective activities. If your school does a theme for the week or each day, I've also included some fun and fresh ideas for your students to do. There is an "all wrapped up" mummy-themed craftivity also included, in which students put drugs to rest, for good. There are magazine type articles included that are perfect for close reading activities, as well.
