About the newly-revised toolkit

"Smoking Isn't Cool":

  • Provides a variety of smoking-prevention activities, printables, references, web resources and a sample lesson plan to help students understand the harmful effects of smoking.
  • Has been updated to include the Ontario Physical Health and Education Association (Ophea) Infographic, Healthy, Active Living Lives Here. Children and youth will lead healthy, active lives when the skills they have learned through Health and Physical Education are reinforced at home, in their healthy school and community.

About the original version

Our "Smoking Isn't Cool" Toolkit was originally created to meet the Ontario Curriculum, Grades 1 to 8: Health and Physical Education, 1998 tobacco prevention component, substance use and abuse learning expectations within the healthy living strand.

A lot has changed in the world of tobacco since then.

Guidelines for use

"Smoking Isn't Cool" offers teachers a sample lesson plan, support tools and materials to help you teach smoking prevention to students in Kindergarten to Grade 5. While the activities are designed and intended for specific grades, you know your students best. Choose the activities you think your students will enjoy.

Kindergarten to Grade 5 toolkits are loaned to teachers/schools in Peel Region. We are able to loan toolkits for a two week period.
