Lesson One: Introduction to Alcohol

Learning Objective: By the end of the lesson the students should have a good grasp on the fact that when you put alcohol in your body you can’t do things you normally would be able to do.

4. For the classroom activity place two lines of masking tape on the floor. Have them the same distance apart that a dollar bill would be. Now you can have the entire class line up one side and give the jump a try. You may have them try one at a time or the entire group at once.
