PowerPoint Lesson
Topics include:
• What are pests?
• Definitions of pesticide, insecticide, herbicide and fungicide
• The need for pest control
• Benefits of pesticides
• Drawbacks of pesticides
• Alternatives to pesticides

I have included examples that connect this environmental topic to society. I want my students to be able to see both sides of an argument, so they have to shift perspectives and empathize when they learn about DDT’s impact on malaria and how it bioamplifies up the food chain and endangered birds. I also included information and visual evidence that supports the claim that pesticides can cause neurological defects in children.

The PowerPoint presentation is 23 slides and completely editable.

Note and Homework
I want my students to be able to determine the key points from the PowerPoint, so the note included has only the headings: definition, benefits of pesticides, drawbacks of pesticides, alternatives to pesticides and summary. Teach them note-taking skills as you go through this lesson.

There are 5 homework questions that have the students shift their perspective on pesticides from person to person, research some simple alternatives and reflect on who is responsible for banning pesticides. Critical thinking is required here.

The note and homework questions are provided as PDF and editable .docx files. Full solutions are included.

Instead of asking the students to “define this, define that” in their homework questions, I created a domino puzzle that allows them to practice the new terms in a fun way!

Domino Puzzle
I’ve included two different sizes of the same puzzle. The normal size requires 1 piece of paper per puzzle and can be solved on the student’s desk or on a table - great for sending home with students to practice! The larger size requires 4 pieces of paper and quite a bit of space to solve!

Cut out the 12 game pieces. Students will begin with the domino piece labeled with “Start” and find the piece that has the definition to match with each term until the “Finish” piece is used. All pieces are used and the solution is included (note the shape will change depending on the student, but the order will always be the same). Students can use this to study independently, practice vocabulary or, for a fun challenge, use it in class and see which student or pair can solve the puzzle first!

I’ve been using these puzzles for years with great success! I recommend printing the puzzles on colorful paper and laminating them. This way you only have to cut them out once and they will last year after year!

The terms defined in this puzzle are:
Pesticide, insecticide, fungicide, herbicide, bioamplification, malaria, pesticide resistance, mechanical control, biological control, pest and DDT.

Quiz
A 4-question (2-page) quiz covers knowledge, application and communication skills. The quiz is provided as PDF and editable .docx files. Full solutions are included.
