Climate Change and Human Health Lesson Plans

These climate and health learning modules are for a variety of student audiences to explore the health impacts of climate change both in the United States and globally. Materials are suitable to teach high school courses on earth, life, and environmental sciences; history; geography; health care; or social studies. The lesson plans challenge students to consider the complex interactions between environmental health and human health and encourages them to improve their communities and design interventions to enhance climate resilience. Students also learn more about disease prevention, such as how to eliminate breeding sites for mosquitoes and how vectors—and the health risks they present in their community—may change as the climate does. Some lessons are also available in Spanish.
