First crossword puzzle made by the Netherlands
Dutch students made the first crossword puzzle to test the knowledge of consequences of smoking on health.
Comperison of Dutch and Italian smoking behaviour
From te results of the questionnaire about smoking it seems that more Dutch student smoke (21% of the students that filled in the questionnaire), that many of them smoke more than a package of cigarettes a day and that they have started at an earlier age than the Italian students.
All the Dutch and Italian students know very well that smoking is bad for health, but the stress and pressure of peers seem to have a lot of influence on their smoking behaviour.
Based on the results making a campagne to keep peers from smoking shouldn't be about health consequences, but more...
We also share simple experiments on the consequences of smoking.
Questionnaire on smoking
It is very interesting to compare results with peers from other countries and this gives students the chance to reflect more about smoking and its consequences.
Most of the students (both Dutch and Italian) say they get information about health consequences on smoking from their teachers.
This project can help, too.
