Grades K-5 Videos and Lesson Plans

Please see the list of available media below.

One of the reasons prescription drug abuse is so prevalent in teens is their perception that Rx drugs are not dangerous. 

It is our belief that the dangers of abusing prescription drugs need to introduced at a very young age, even as young as kindergarten.  

We ask the teachers of this age group to please have a brief discussion with your class. The NIDA video about addiction could be used as an introduction to a class discussion.

Some topics you could cover:

  • Never take a Rx drug from a bottle that doesn’t have their name on it
  • Abusing Rx drugs can be very dangerous causing hospitalization, even death and can be highly addictive
  • Talk about what abusing means and what addiction means.

A simple discussion with the class will have a positive impact and help build the understanding of the real dangers abusing Rx Drugs poses.  

We have found there is a shortage of educational materials for K-5, especially grades K-3. Please continue to check back to our website as we will be adding appropriate media as soon as we find it.
