Teachers' Domain, Protect Your Health and Environment , published June 14, 2012, retrieved on ,
In this self-paced lesson, students learn what they can do to protect themselves from health hazards in their environment. They learn about potential hazards, how these can affect their health, and what they can do to minimize their exposure. As they work through the lesson, they will view videos, play an interactive activity, respond to questions, take a quiz, and complete a final assignment.
This is a student-directed lesson. Students will complete the lesson online, then print a summary of their notes and interactive activity results. Students can use this printout for reference when completing the final writing assignment offline.
Download and print the Protect Your Health and Environment—Teacher's Guide (PDF) for essential background information and suggestions for ways to support the lesson.
Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
