Pollution Solutions: Earth Day
Eighth graders explore water pollution. In this stewardship lesson, 8th graders draw comparisons between potable and impaired waters. Students use the Learning Link website to examine ways people are fighting pollution and then design an action hero to end water pollution.
Eating healthy can be a challenge, especially for people with special dietary needs. After learning about standard nutritional needs for adults, learners take on the role of a dietician and work together to create a menu for one of the following unique nutritional needs: High blood pressure Vegetarian Pregnancy Lactose intolerance Type 2 diabetes High performance athletes Astronauts By examining the special dietary restrictions for their assigned person, groups determine how to ensure a balanced menu while taking into account the unique issues facing their assigned nutritional specialty.
