What’s in a Cigarette?

25 Jan

Many people smoke. But have the considered the smorgasbord of chemicals they are inhaling with every cigarette?

This site highlights some of the chemicals that can be found in cigarettes.


  1. with a partner, choose 1 chemical to research
  2. find out what else that chemical is used for. Try searching the NIOSH website to get you started (look for results that say “pocket guide”).
  3. create a short oral/visual presentation that educates about the effects of that chemical. If you create a powerpoint for example, you should use the least number of words possible.
  4. If possible, end your presentation with a catchy message
  5. You will present this to the class during next week’s homeroom lesson.
