Teachers' Domain, How Does Your Environment Affect Your Health?, published June 15, 2012, retrieved on ,
In this self-paced lesson, students learn how environmental factors affect the health of living things, including humans. They will view videos, use an interactive activity, and respond to writing prompts to investigate common environmental health hazards, routes of exposure, factors that influence the potential health effects, and ways to reduce exposure. They finish the lesson by completing a final writing 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 How Does Your Environment Affect Your Health?—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.
