The Black River Falls Teens Against Tobacco Use (T.A.T.U) went to Gebhardt Elementary today to teach the fourth grade class about the dangers of smoking and how the tobacco companies use flashy advertising to try to trick people into using tobacco.
It was a whirlwind morning with lots of different activities going on for the fourth graders. The T.A.T.U. presenters only had thirty minutes to present on the dangers of smoking, usually T.A.T.U. is a 40-45 minute presentation, but that did not deter them at all. The T.A.T.U. presenters did an fantastic job and were still able to get talk about what goes into cigarettes, and show off Clem’s Phlem(r), the Jar-O-Tar(r), and of course the imfamous pig’s lungs. The T.A.T.U. members even found time to play a few intense games of kickball against the fourth and fifth grade classes.
Black River Falls’ presentation today is the last T.A.T.U. presentation for the 2012-2013 school year. Melrose-Mindoro and Lincoln T.A.T.U. groups have already presented and also did an outstanding job. Thank you very much to all of the T.A.T.U. members for taking time out of your busy schedules to teach the fourth grade classes in the area about the dangers of smoking and a very big thank you to the T.A.T.U. Trainers for volunteering your time to help teach the presentation to the T.A.T.U. members.
