What's the Plan?
Is there a higher risk of dying on an intensely hot or incredibly cold day? Explore the effects of extreme weather on human health by reading a short article about a study done to address this question. Since the links in the lesson are not valid, have individuals find the article online and then continue on the Internet to complete the research that is suggested in the student handout. This is a sound interdisciplinary lesson for practicing scientific literacy, research skills, or simply considering the impact of extreme weather on vulnerable populations.
