Mitchell, Christine K.; And Others
This teaching guide for a tobacco education curriculum at the kindergarten level is part of a coordinated K-12 educational support program for reducing smoking. It includes a tobacco curriculum matrix for grades K-12, sample teaching methods, concepts and objectives for grades K-3, and a resource materials list. The basic instructional concepts for the kindergarten level focus on helping students: (1) develop positive self-images to enable them to accept and express themselves and to make independent decisions; (2) feel good about themselves so that they are able to work, play, and interact with others responsibly; and (3) adopt non-smoking attitudes and behaviors in the desire to stay well and to have a strong healthy body. Objectives, teacher information worksheets and learning activities for each concept are provided. Additionally, the appendices list the addresses of the New York county units of the American Cancer Society, the American Lung Association, and the American Heart Association. (Author/NRB)
