Environmental Health Science Education, K-12

This Web site explains the link between human health and the environment. It includes fact sheets, news articles, videos, and pamphlets that can help with reports, papers, and homework in general; interactive online activities and storybooks to enhance learning; and opportunities for summer jobs and research. Teachers will find a long list of curricular materials grouped into several categories. There are also lesson resources such as interviews, fact sheets, videos, flyers, and Web sites, as well as professional development opportunities. The third section for scientists will also be of interest to teachers, as it includes classroom activities that use simple strategies to effectively communicate complex ideas on toxicology to students.
