Description:

Explore the dynamic world of environmental health with this comprehensive resource, the Environmental Health Unit. This high-quality resource centers around essential questions, including: “What is environmental health?,” “How do chemicals in our environment affect our health?” and How can an outbreak of a disease begin and then spread?

 

In this three-week, low-prep unit, students delve into the intricate web of concepts surrounding environmental health, investigating the impact of chemicals on human well-being and understanding the dynamics of disease outbreaks.

 

Throughout the unit, students encounter key concepts such as DDT, pathogens, and various hazards (biological, social, chemical, and physical). The lessons explore epidemiology, toxicology, dose-response relationships, risk assessments, and the effects of pollutants like carcinogens, chemical mutagens, teratogens, neurotoxins, and allergens. From examining environmental hazards like asbestos, radon, VOCs, carbon monoxide, and lead to understanding the mechanisms of bioaccumulation and biomagnification, students gain a holistic understanding of the factors influencing environmental health.

 

Equip your learners with the knowledge to make informed decisions about their well-being and contribute to creating a healthier and safer environment for all.
