Educators! Make sure you check out DEA and Discovery Ed’s Operation Prevention site for exciting new interactive resources to teach kids about the dangers of heroin and opioid addiction.
 
They include:
  • The Science of Addiction Student Learning Module: Using the stories of 3 teens, this interactive module allows students to investigate the impacts of heroin and prescription opioids on the brain and body through a self-paced scientific exploration.
  • Elementary School Lesson: Joining the middle and high school lessons, Proactive Prevention, a new lesson and educator guide for an elementary school audience, explains how medications work in our bodies and why it is important to use them responsibly.
  • Extended Parent Toolkit: Now available with discussion starters for elementary age students.
  • Spanish Resources: Operation Prevention’s website, Parent Toolkit, and new learning module are now available in Spanish.
     
While on the site you can also take your students on a ‘Virtual Field Trip’, and explore lesson plans for middle and high schoolers
