This interactive e-book guides you through the effects of alcohol on the body and some of the physical and social consequences of underage drinking. The e-book was produced by the AAAS Science Inside Alcohol Project, which is funded by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse. It has several sections to it, including: Alcohol and the Human Body, Impacts of Underage Drinking, and FAQs about Underage Drinking. In addition to these sections, there is a special section on stories about kids who have been impacted by alcohol abuse in some way.
This resource contains a lot of information about how drinking too much alcohol can affect certain body systems. As such, it can be used as a stand-alone resource for students to use when conducting research on alcohol's impacts on their body systems. It also can be used in conjunction with lessons on alcohol abuse or human health. It would fit in nicely with any lessons on physical health, basic functions, or human development. In addition, the e-book would work well with lessons where students are asked to assess the social trade-offs associated with their personal habits and behavior.
