Mrs. Kersey's, Teaching As A Profession Class recently went to Lake Forest for a day and taught lessons on Tobacco Prevention as part of a grant from the Bradley County Health Department. The lesson covered cigarettes, dipping, second hand smoke and the trend of e-cigarettes. Students covered the dangers of tobacco and the costs involved in the addiction. We shared that many people think e-cigs will help stop smoking when in actuality they contain nicotine and other chemicals that are very harmful. There are many stories in the news about e-cigs blowing up in peoples hands and faces too. So the lesson was,"don't start using tobacco products!"
FCCLA's next project is to provide Easter baskets for elementary students and we will tell you all about it in next months post.
