Drinkaware has launched Drinkaware for Education - a set of free, curriculum linked, alcohol education resources. Suitable for PSHE classes, the resources are flexible allowing teachers to mix and match activities to suit their needs.
There are 4 lessons for primary schools (9-11 years old) and 5 lessons for secondary schools (11-14 years old), including a booster lesson.
The resources include:
- Lesson plans
- Homework activities
The resources require students to work in teams, as well as take part in whole class activities, to explore subjects including:
- Risk and harms associated with drinking alcohol underage
- The affect alcohol can have on emotional health and wellbeing
- The relationship between peer pressure and underage drinking.
To accompany the resources Drinkaware have also produced an infographic showing young people’s drinking behaviour and attitude in the UK.
