Great Ideas for Teaching Alcohol Awareness

Are you a teacher? Are you looking for materials or information to teach alcohol awareness? Do your students know that a large glass of wine has roughly the same number of calories as a doughnut? Or that drinking alcohol over a long period of time may damage a person's self-control and ability to plan, think and make decisions? Or how about the fact that drinking affects our memory? The newspaper, 'The Guardian', has put together a great list of resources that covers the ins and outs of teaching alcohol awareness in schools. The list includes lesson plans, power point presentations, fact sheets, interactive websites and other useful teaching materials. Here's a summary of the resources:
