Recent studies show that inhalant abuse among middle school age children is on the rise. Inhalant abuse is dangerous and education should start before abuse peaks in eighth grade. This set of lessons is designed to introduce inhalant prevention education as part of a health or science curriculum that touches on the negative effects of pollution.
- Poison Prevention (4th grade)
- Body Pollution (5th grade)
- Toxic Chemicals (6th grade and above)
- Combination Lesson (6th grade and above)
