Homeroom

Homeroom offers the opportunity to talk casually with students and can be the perfect entry point for starting a conversation about making healthy decisions. Below are five storyteller videos with corresponding discussion questions and activities that can be used once a day for a week or spread out over a semester. Since homeroom is a brief amount of time, we recommend watching a video and selecting a discussion question or two for students to answer if time permits.

  • Step 1 Watch A Natural High Video
  • Step 2 Discuss Together As A Group
  • Step 3 Go Deeper Through Fun Activities
