Educational Materials for Middle School Teachers

MDH developed a number of educational materials for teachers to educate middle school students on the public health impacts of climate change. Aligned with the Minnesota Academic Standards, these materials complement the film, Health and Climate, and help to reinforce and elaborate on important points of the film. The materials range from a presentation on the associations between climate change and public health, to trivia and vocabulary games, to a computer lab exercise using real health data from MDH. Below find a list of the educational resources. All materials listed are free for download and use. If you have questions about the materials or would like to provide feedback, please contact the MN Climate and Health Program at health.climatechange@state.mn.us.
