For Teachers: Would you like to incorporate climate change and infectious disease topics into your lessons? We have developed a Teacher's Toolkit which includes a five-lesson plan to guide you in facilitating a rich, cross-curricular learning experience for your students, borrowing on skills from Science, Math, Language, Geography, Physical Education, Health, and Art. It also includes instructions on helping your students develop their poster entries, and links to additional resources.
