Drug Awareness:

Drug Research Project




Students will research drugs in order to create

a visual display identifying the harmful effects

of drug use.


I can research using online resources such as databases and professional websites.

I can create citations using EasyBib.

I can choose copyright free pictures by using the proper filter.





1. You will be researching one of the following topics:



Club Drugs

Narcotics Hallucinogens Steroids




2. Research information about your drug. Remember to include the information below: 

  •  3 reasons why it would be harmful for a teenager to use this drug.
  •  5 necessary facts about the drug that a teen would need to understand in order to refuse it.
  •  An anti-drug slogan incorporating information obtained about the drug




Remember to keep EasyBib open as your research!

Showcase your knowledge of the drug unit:

Below are choices of how I can assess what you learned.

Each project will be graded using the same criteria:


Board Game

Create a board game that deals with fact-based information from any drug. The game board could be modeled after games like Sorry, Life, Candyland, etc. Don’t forget to name the game. The game board, any cards and/or game pieces, and instructions must be included. Don’t forget to be neat, colorful, & organized.  Write a paragraph on what message you are trying to convey.  


Choose a song and re-write the lyrics to highlight the needed criteria.   Type a minimum one page  analysis of the words and attitudes towards drugs expressed in the song. 

Children's Book 

Write and illustrate a children’s book with an anti-drug message. It must include at least two characters with names, mention of the criteria, and illustrations on at least 3 pages. Your story should contain at least 10 pages of story content. Don’t forget to title the story and create a binding for the book. 


Create a poster that is neat, colorful, organized and fact-based.  Be creative with the format so that there is minimal blank, open space.  Perhaps the poster could be “interactive”?


Write a poem. A minimum of 40 lines is required (just short of one full page Word document). The final draft should be typed or written neatly in pen and mounted with a visual illustration, collage, drawing, photograph, etc. to compliment the poem’s theme.

Radio/TV Advertisement 

Create a 60-second radio commercial for teenagers about the myths and truths surrounding a specific drug. Record (video or audio) it and turn it in with script and a paragraph (5 sentences minimum) on what you learned. 

Design a Brochure 

Use the computer or colored pencils and paper to design a brochure highlighting the information about your drug.

Newspaper Cover Page 

Create a cover page for a newspaper outlining all of the facts about your drug.  Do this on the computer or by hand.

Comic Strip 

Create your own comic strip dealing with a drug message. There should be a minimum of 15 frames, which include the facts from the criteria. Write a paragraph on what message you are trying to convey. It can be black and white, but it must be neat and legible. 


Create a presentation about a drug related topic and present it to the class. All material must be fact-based. The PowerPoint must include text, visuals, custom animation, slide transitions, and sound. The end of the report must include a 5-question multiple-choice quiz to test the audience. Don’t forget to include the correct answers! A minimum of 15 slides must be included [this includes the title (1), resources (1), & quiz slides (1)]. 

Anti-Drug Box

Use a box as your template.  Cover the box and create the five showing sides to display your facts.

Create an Assessment 

Use the facts you learned to create a test for your teacher.  Include a variety of questions as well as an answer key.  You could use paper and pencil or a computer.  You might also consider using an app like Kahoot!.

Create Your Own 

Get your teacher's approval
