This video gives an overview of Climate and Health, and especially about the vector-borne diseases.
|In this lesson plan, students learn about the impacts of climate change on human health. The lesson plan contains several modules and case studies on issues such as Temperature-related Death and Illness; Air Quality Impacts; Vector-Borne Diseases; Water-Related Illness; Food Safety; Mental Health and Well-Being.|
This activity enables students to examine the relationship between temperature and the geographical distribution of malaria, and to determine how climate change may affect the spread and distribution of the disease. Students will use maps and temperature data sheets to determine the locations where malaria is known to occur and the temperature ranges in these locations. Further, they will discuss and explore the potential impact of climate change and the resulting change in temperature on the geographical distribution of malaria.

|This reading resource can be used by educators teaching Psychology or Social Sciences to show the psychological dimensions of climate change. It contains six sections that include information on how people understand the risks imposed by climate change, human behavioral contributions to climate change, psycho-social impacts of climate change, how people adapt and cope with perceived threats due to climate change, psychological barriers that limit climate change action and how psychologists can assist in limiting climate change.|
This game helps students to identify diseases from their symptoms, to understand the possible effects of climate change on human health in different regions of the world, and to explore measures (specifically, policies) for adaptation and mitigation in the context of health impacts of climate change.
This interactive map helps students to visualize the impacts of a global temperature rise on human health, agriculture, forests, oceans and marine ecosystems, permafrost, water availability, extreme climate events, sea-level rise, etc.
As a teacher of high school Biology, you can use this set of computer-based tools when teaching about protozoa, vector-borne diseases (such as malaria), and human health and diseases.
