Health Rocks! Is That a Fact?

Learn to distinguish between facts and assumptions and develop the skills you need to make good decisions in life.

Sometimes when we're in certain situations, we do things because we know the facts. Other times, we do things because we make an assumption or a guess. As we grow up, it’s important to learn how to distinguish between the two, and use the information you have to make better decisions.

A fact is reality or truth. An assumption is something we think is true, but when we look at the facts, it is not always correct. In this activity, you’ll learn to tell the difference between a fact and an assumption—and challenge some common assumptions about teen tobacco, alcohol, and drug use.
