(PDF Download) Rx for Understanding: Be Smart about Prescription Drugs (Grades 5-8)


Rx for Understanding contains five sequenced lessons geared for grades 5 – 6 and five sequenced lessons geared for grades 7– 8.
Each set of sequenced lessons acts as a mini-unit. Each grade level based mini-unit focuses on the same five lesson themes:

Relating the issue of prescription drug safety to overall health
Understanding proper use
Understanding misuse
Understanding abuse
Conducting an application-based culminating project

The lessons in this guide represent a cross-curricular approach to teaching with a concentrated emphasis on national education standards, including the National Health Education Standards and the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Mathematics.
The lessons can be reorganized to match your own curriculum standards. You may be looking for an opportunity to integrate the topic of prescription drugs into a particular content area. The Meeting National Education Standards chart on page 114 – 119 can help you to do so.
