Here is more about this unit:

- Foster a care and concern for our environment, and inspire community awareness. Help students make your school, community, and world a great place to live and work! Pair-share and hands-on for this project-based unit!

- Students enjoy working in pairs to analyze two environmental issues, and then come up with possible solutions.  This intro activity next has students meet up in groups and share solutions and rate the issue on how concerning they feel it is.

- In the following days students will learn more in-depth about the issues, and even have a chance to go back and re-rate how concerning the issue is now that they understand more about it!  Very powerful and eye-opening!


These activities are taken directly from my Full Semester/Year High School Health Curriculum, and my Middle/Junior High School Health Curriculum which are both #1 Best-Selling Health Curriculums on TPT!
