    Lesson Plan

    Before the lesson, write on index cards situations students might face in which they have to say no to drugs. A few sources for examples:

    Divide the class into small groups. Give each group a card with a situation. Tell each group to make up a short skit or play showing the situation and a solution to the problem. Then have each group act out the skit.

    Extension: Have students discuss each skit and offer other solutions to the problem.

    Assessment

    Observe students' participation. Evaluate students' skits and solutions to the problems.
