What's in a Vape? (CTE)


Students will evaluate the physical structure of an E-Cig and evaluate its inherent health implications.


This is lesson 3 in a series of 4 lessons that will culminate in a campaign about the harmful effects of choosing to Vape.

In this lesson the students will get to handle an E=Cig and evaluate its physical manufacturing in relationship to how it works. This may be used as a standalone lesson along the lines of "Evaluating the Manufacturing of E-Cigs and Their Health Implications".


In this lesson students will also draw on previous knowledge from lessons 1 and 2, in evaluating those most at risk of smoking and the harmful effects, by collecting data on their county and discovering what populations make up the majority of smokers. Finally, students will leave this lesson with an opinion on what the health concerns are regarding Vape cigarettes.

At the end of this lesson, students will be assessed by a portfolio that they have created.
