Take children to another place and time, the world of the “Drugosaurs,” to create drug awareness and prevent drug abuse.
This book introduces children to 10 imaginary creatures, Nicotineadon, Amphetidon, Cannabisaur, Fryranosaurus, Steroidopterus, Huffadon, Scriptadon, Boozitupicus, Teracracktyl, and Velociraver, that became extinct from using tobacco, amphetamines, marijuana, hallucinogens, steroids, inhalants, prescription drugs, alcohol, crack/cocaine, and MDMA/Ecstasy.
Two pages are dedicated to each drug. The first page tells the story of the drugosaur and how it became extinct. The second page details what each drug does to the user, long- and short- term effects, and its street names. This section is followed by fill-in-the-blank exercises that help children form an association between substance abuse and self-destruction. Drugosaurs teach children to make smart and healthy choices by avoiding drugs. The underlying theme of the activity book is a “Don’t go extinct!” no-use message.
This activity book is also available in Spanish.
