Subject: Activities and Resources to Teach Environmental Health

Are you doing a unit on environmental health? The Environmental Health Portal is an excellent resource for middle school students. It covers air pollution, chemicals, climate change, and water pollution. The For Teachers page links to lesson plans on a variety of environmental health topics.

There is also a cool online activity called Tox TownIt was created for grades 9-12, but you may be able to use or modify the lesson plans and materials for younger students. In Tox Town, students travel to different neighborhoods to learn about chemical hotspots and the effects of toxic chemicals.
