Minnesota Department of Health: Climate and Health Resources

How does global climate change impact the health of individuals and communities? The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) offers this collection of resources to engage students and members of the general public with issues at the intersection of health and climate. These resources are designed for kids and adults in Minnesota, but many can be adapted for individuals in other areas as well. For instance, educators in the U.S. midwest may be able to use the 27-minute video about how climate change is impacting the ecology and public health of Minnesota. This video is accompanied by a discussion guide for adults designed to create dialogue. Meanwhile, middle school educators will find a variety of classroom activities along with a lesson plan and PowerPoint presentation designed to teach major vocabulary and concepts related to climate change and health. Many of these educational resources are not Minnesota-specific and could be used in a variety of science and health classrooms.
