Response

Identify what items you would choose to buy that cost the same as the fine for vaping on school property ($305) and for supplying vape products to youth ($490). List items and their prices that add up to each of these totals.

Communication

You have been assigned a mission to communicate with aliens in another galaxy about something they have never heard of: vaping. Your task is to write them a letter describing the issue we are seeing on Planet Earth. You must explain:

  • What vaping is
  • Why people are vaping
  • Why people might say vaping is positive or negative
  • Your recommendations for whether they should allow vaping on their planet or not

Call to Action

Create a meme to encourage students not to vape on school property, or in general. Place a caption on a picture to get your point across.
