Teachers' Domain, Teaching Environmental Public Health: Strategies for Healthy Living, published June 15, 2012, retrieved on ,
This lesson designed for professional development looks at standards-based approaches to introducing the subject of environmental public health to students in grades K-4. Explore challenges with teaching younger students about environmental public health and look at ways to make the subject accessible to them. View videos and interactive activities to learn more about common environmental public health hazards and think about how you could incorporate topics of environmental public health into your health or science curricula.
Note: You should complete the introductory self-paced lesson—Teaching Environmental Public Health: An Introduction—before beginning this 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.
