Health and Climate Education Resources

The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) offers educational resources that explore climate changes in Minnesota and how these changes are impacting human health. Targeted for middle level classrooms, the resources include the film, Health and Climate, which describes the ways people can adapt to and mitigate climate change, and teaching resources that promote the exploration of climate change and public health impacts in more depth. For example, teachers can access a climate change vocabulary list and a student study guide; a slide set and student handout describing climate change and health effects; a computer lab project that explores health data sets related to climate change; a trivia game; a create your own “doodle” or artistic rendering of climate change game; and a discussion guide.
