7th Grade Health
Ms. Lee's Periods 1 & 2
Wow! It's week 8 and it will be a busy one as we begin to wrap things up!
Next Monday, October 5th, we will have a test that will cover tobacco, alcohol, and marijuana. We spent the past week and a half working on tobacco and it's effects. This week, we will add in alcohol and marijuana.
We will be looking at how both alcohol and marijuana affect the body, harmful consequences of both, and how advertisers target specific groups to sell their products. With alcohol, one of the tools we are using is a web-based lesson from Science Net Links to see exactly how it affects the various body systems. Students are using ipads during class (see pictures below) today and tomorrow to complete the lesson. In the event they do not finish, the link will be posted to Edmodo for them to complete at home.
Alcohol Magazine Advertisements Homework
On Wednesday, we will be looking at magazine and television advertisements that focus on alcohol and how those companies target specific groups to sell their products. I have asked students to bring in alcohol ads from magazines to help complete this task so don't be surprised if they come home asking to look through them. Below is an example of what they might find.
