Reviewer Comments:

This lesson plan describes a simple research project and is appropriate for middle school students. Students split into groups and research different classes of drugs, including the physical and psychological effects of the substance, classification and personal impact. Post-project questions allow for peer sharing of student work and personal reflection. Suggested websites for background information are included. There are listed project expectations, but no specific assessment is provided.
