Scurvy at Sea: Researching and Writing About Vitamin C Deficiency

Students 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.
