Pig’s Lung Demonstration
This resource contains a set of pig’s lungs which visually show a healthy lung compared to a lung with damage which would be similar to what a smoker experiences. This resource can be used for lessons on smoking as well as vaping. Please note: this demonstration is only given by a member of the Health Unit staff; it cannot be loaned out to schools.
Cigarette Chemical Roll-Out Display
This resource is an oversized cigarette that features a roll-out list of the chemical ingredients. It can be used to demonstrate the large quantity of dangerous chemicals in each cigarette.

This resource of “flash card” style questions and answers can be used as an interactive game to engage your class. Tobacco is one topic covered in the questions.
