This resource contains a variety of SWF games, created using the StudyMate tool, covering the approximately 12 keywords related to drugs and smoking used in the UK-based, KS3 Science: Drugs and Behaviours unit (equivalent to US middle school level). Resources include a crossword puzzle, a fill in the blank quiz, a flash card quiz, a glossary, and pick a letter (like Hangman) quiz. Each of the games has a scoring feature, including hints and reset buttons. All activities include the same stock images. These resources could be a nice was to introduce or reinforce key vocabulary, although they would have to be used as part of a larger curricular unit to actually teach the concepts effectively.
