Scurvy at Sea: Researching and Writing About Vitamin C Deficiency

Young scholars gather information about vitamin C deficiency, and research how scurvy was prevented in sea-going ventures during The Age of Sail. They create a "Scurvy Log" that will allow them to connect what they have learned about scurvy and its effects on the body (as vitamin C deficiency), and how ship provisioners, captains, and crew could work to prevent scurvy at sea.

As a first year teacher Lesson Planet was an incrediable help. I could see what other teachers had done to give me ideas. The time guidelines, materials needed and resource information gave me guidance in structuring my own plans. Many of the plans are well laid out and were very usable, which was a great time saver.
