Why Lesson Planet?
Begin the instructional activity by having your class write what they know about diabetes. They learn through a skit how the body metabolizes glucose. A visual representation of the two types of diabetes is displayed, and then learners participate in role-playing patients with diabetes and their doctors. Handouts and teachers notes are provided. The link to the skit does not work, but the skit is easily located via an online search. It's not an exciting instructional activity, but it is educational and pertinent, especially with the epidemic levels of diabetes in the Western culture. A few of the student research links are broken, but the majority do work.
