Be the Change: Global Health
Students learn about three global health issues and ways to take local action to address the issues: sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), global hunger, and malaria.
Collaboration with generationOn
Students research the names, causes, and symptoms of common sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). They identify resources someone can turn to for help with STDs and propose and carry out a plan to teach others about STDs.
Students define hunger and explore the myths and facts about the issue of global hunger. They brainstorm actions they can take to reduce the effects of hunger on others in their community and around the world. Students write poems to represent their thinking about the problem of hunger.
Students learn facts about the global threat of malaria and methods for fighting its spread. Students learn one way they can take action against malaria through fundraising to purchase insecticide-treated bed nets.
