Environmental Health Hazards and Children

Students are introduced to the environmental hazards their community is facing. In groups, they develop a list of the ways humans have changed the Earth and how these changes have lead to environmental hazards. They record their observations on what types of pollution they see during a week and graph the results. To end the lesson, they role-play the various roles within a food chain and how insecticides can interrupt the cycle.

Lesson Planet has been awesome to me. As a 1st year teacher I often spend so much time planning and researching materials that could help my students/classes learn. Lesson Planet has given me great access to emergency lesson plans and activities, video clips, and many more unit ideas to succeed.
