How To Use These Guides
Activity guides are divided into three levels:
- Level 1 aims to establish foundational knowledge about a specific lung health issue using a fun and interactive true or false activity.
- Level 2 explores different perspectives and/or opinions on a specific lung health issue using a small group activity to establish the arguments from each side of the issue
- Level 3 provides an opportunity for youth to demonstrate the ability to apply appropriate skills and strategies in making decisions about their health through role play/discussion of different scenarios
All three levels are intended to engage young people, using interactive activities, while inspiring critical thinking and reflection.
Each level is approximately 40-45 minutes and consists of an introduction, core activity, and debrief. We have provided sample energizers and debriefing activities, however, we encourage you to mix and match and/or incorporate your own activities, if needed, to best meet the needs of your group.
