***AWARD WINNING LESSON PLAN***by Anatomy Academy
I was recognized by the principal and the NC Department of Instruction for this lesson that helped discover Juvenile Onset Diabetes in a 15-year old student. And now I’m sharing it with teachers who want to make a life-changing difference with their lessons.
My students have been enthusiastic about this hands-on, fun activity every year! Even kids who aren't in my class have heard about it and stop by to ask me if I'll check them for diabetes.
It’s a sweet lesson plan that will have your students lined up and eager to participate! This is RELEVANT, HANDS ON and REAL LIFE! Here’s what’s included:
• 2—90 minute, structured, 6-point LESSON PLANS—covers 2 days
• PLANNING & MATERIALS CHECKLISTS
• Editable PARENT LETTER/PERMISSION SLIP—just date, sign, and run copies
• DIABETES WORKSHEETS & ENDOCRINE QUESTIONS plus KEYS
• KWL CHART
• BLOOD GLUCOSE TESTING LOG
• TASK CARDS in easy-to-read 14 font, containing lesson plans in a different color for each day
• TASK CARDS containing your planning & materials checklists (Cards can be laminated, written on with Expo markers, and re-used again & again)
• MY PERSONAL CONTACT INFO in case you have questions.
Students will learn about the endocrine disorder Diabetes in this 2-day lesson plan that involves both the teacher and students. Students will begin learning using a KWL chart, and then progress to exploring diabetes by using a worksheet that involves interactive online research. When students return to the next class, they will have their blood sugar tested, as they continue learning more about diabetes with some critical thinking questions. Class ends with review, discussion (students are always eager to discuss this activity), and clean up.
NOTE: Students should have already learned about the endocrine system structure and function prior to this lesson plan. Also, this lesson plan involves ADVANCE PLANNING on the teacher’s part. If you’re a teacher who is not a health care professional, consider letting students do their own finger sticks. Diabetics do it every day, and some of them are kids! Or you can ask the school nurse to do them.
