Drugs and Your Heart (5th)

No matter how many times we tell kids NOT to do drugs, the reality is, they are going to make their own decisions. This class is designed to teach the students how their heart works and how important it is for continued life and health and what effect drugs can have on their heart. Throughout the lesson, the students are reminded that they don’t need drugs to survive and they need to think about what could happen to their heart if they use drugs. A real cow’s heart is used in the discussion. This presentation is 45-55 minutes long.

This interactive lesson is a hands-on approach to good dental hygiene.  For 4th grade classes, a pretest and 60-day post-test are required for this lesson.
