Product Description

This 23-slide PowerPoint lesson on Diabetes is geared towards high school level students. As such, it contains everything you need to teach the topic effectively to this age group without being overly complicated or too simplistic. It begins by examining what diabetes is as well as an explanation of the three types of diabetes - type I, type II, and gestational. It then goes into what insulin does and the role is plays in diabetes. Your students will then learn the main causes of diabetes, how diabetes is diagnosed and treated as well as the consequences of living with diabetes. The lesson concludes by looking at how diabetics monitor their blood sugar levels as well as the future of diabetes treatments.

This resource covers the following topics:

•What is diabetes mellitus?

•The Different Types of Diabetes

•Type I

•Type II



•Causes of Diabetes

•Diagnosing Diabetes

•Diabetes Symptoms

•The Consequences of Diabetes

The student version of the PowerPoint contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.
