Product Description

Many teens seem to think that over-the-counter (OTC) medicines are safe!

Even when we follow the directions, OTC medicines can cause adverse effects, drug-drug interactions, food-drug interactions, and allergic reactions. Worse, many teens don't follow the directions and misuse or abuse OTC products and can face many dangers: including D.U.I charges, overdoses and death!

Your students will get engaged in this "guess-the-answers and walk around the room to correct them" scavenger hunt activity.

Here is what is included:

-A background information sheet on OTC medicines

-OTC Medicine Cabinet and Narcotics Worksheet

-OTC Answer Sheets

-How To Read an OTC Drug Facts Label Sheet

-Ideas for bringing in empty OTC products to use in an activity to extend this lesson.

See attached complete teacher directions, worksheets, and keys!!
