Brain Power: Grades 6-9


  1. Have students do research on ADHD using the student magazine, the Internet, and other magazines. Tell them to develop an outline summarizing ADHD: what it is, the symptoms, how common it is in children, behaviors associated with the disorder, and treatment. This will give students a better understanding of the disorder, as well as why many children take medication to treat ADHD.
  1. Distribute drawing paper and drawing supplies to students. Tell them that they are going to be making a brochure for younger students (elementary age) to explain the dangers of prescription drug and inhalant abuse. Encourage students to remember what they knew about these issues or drugs when they were younger, and help them brainstorm ideas for how to present the information to the younger audience.
