Second Hand Smoke Lesson Plan

Tomorrow for Health we will be focusing on second hand smoke, and not smoking at all. We all know peer pressure, and what they see adults do has a tremendous effect on choices they make in their lives. Education can teach them why they should not smoke, and the effects smoke has on them, and others around them.

Here is the lesson as outlined in our book:

Secondhand smoke is just as harmful to you as firsthand smoke. Secondhand smoke occurs, when you inhale another person's cigarette smoke, that is floating in the air around you. Sometimes secondhand smoke is hard to avoid. Many public places such as malls, restaurants, and airplanes have banned smoking as well as other public places. However, you may still find yourself in places where people smoke, like in your home, a friends home, or car. In the space on your paper, draw a billboard to convince lawmakers to ban smoking in all public places. You can use pictures, words, and anything else to make your point.

Whether or not you agree with this issue is not the point of this topic. I believe secondhand smoke is dangerous, and that is what I teach my children. If you do not believe that, then you can teach your kids as you see fit. Below is a short Superman clip for young kids to see that smoking is not cool.
