Public Health Curricula for Educators

All Teachers

Do you need interesting, inquiry-based activities for your classroom that meet national and state standards?

Here are direct links to basic microbiology, public health, personal hygiene, bioterrorism and general preparedness activities for grades 3-12 educators matched with corresponding American Association for the Advancement of Science Project 2061 Benchmarks, National Science Education Standards, and Ohio Model objectives. Many of the activities use easily accessible, inexpensive materials and include ready-to-use data sheets.
