All grade 8's have just finished their first unit in Health which has centered around decision making. Next week we will be starting the second round of Health with 8A, and be looking at healthy and non-healthy relationships. Students will be watching a movie on bullying, making a mind map re:healthy/unhealthy relationship, and then participating in a role play centered around conflict resolution.
Students have been studying both the myths and facts about drugs in our first unit. Each student is presenting information to their peers on a variety of drugs, which includes the following information; name of the drug, slang terms for the drugs, physical & psychological side effects, Statistics/data on teenage use, and then some general information about addiction.
Role plays follow using different drug storylines where groups come up with two different ending to the same scenario.
