“Kick It” – Smoking DVD . Rather than producing a DVD on general drugs awareness, we have focused purely on the dangers of cigarette smoking. This is for two reasons. Firstly, we believe being offered cigarettes is the first opportunity children are given to find the wherewithal to be assertive in relation to potential problems with drugs. Secondly, quite simply, every year around 100,000 smokers die as a result of their habit. The two factors are not unrelated. In any event approximately 450 children start smoking every day in Britain and almost no-one starts smoking as an adult. The majority of people who take up smoking do so in adolescence.
“Kick It” – Smoking is approximately 5 minutes in length and delivers a powerful anti-smoking message for children of all ages. The DVD is suitable for Key Stages 2 & 3and considers: what is in a cigarette, how smoking can affect your health and performance at sport, the social and financial costs and peer group pressure. The accompanying notes are designed to augment the DVD material and provide teachers with ideas for classwork and extension activities, such as discussion/group work.
DVDs cost £15+VAT each including postage.
