Why Lesson Planet?
In this health worksheet, middle schoolers learn about UV radiation and sunburn protection by reading the information on the page. Students then are asked to do a "shade audit" or their school to see if there is enough shade in areas where middle schoolers congregate. Students prepare a report about the quality of shade that already exists and the improvements that could be made at the school. This is from Australia Cancer Council but is usable anywhere by older middle schoolers.
