Environmental Causes of Birth Defects

Get your high schoolers thinking about the factors that lead to birth defects. They examine how environmental factors and personal choices can cause birth defects in unborn children. They discover the effects of various handicaps such as blindness, deafness, and paralysis. In a role-playing activity, students act as parents who must decide what action to take for a child with birth defects. Background information, vocabulary, and suggested film titles are included.
