Childhood obesity continues to rise in the United States and along with it is a rise in diagnoses of diabetes. Discovery Education has assembled some good resources for teaching students about diabetes. On Discovering Diabetes teachers can find five lesson plans for teaching about diabetes. Teachers will also find three interactive models and three videos. The interactive models and videos demonstrate systems of the body are affected by diabetes.
Thanks to Discovery Star Educator and all around great guy Ken Shelton for passing along this resource via Twitter.
Applications for Education
These resources from Discovery could be great materials for middle school and high school health and science students.
Update: the site seems to be down right now. I will post it when it’s back online.
