This Week’s Anton Lesson Plan

Health and science are topics that are thoroughly covered in newspapers of every stripe. Millions of people are dealing with health issues, whether it’s changing dietary choices or making an effort to get to the gym or include some kind of other physical activity in their day-to-day schedule.

Elsewhere, stories having to do with the environment get major play, particularly when it comes to issues regarding pollution, climate change or species extinction. The following are exercises students can do to experience the different facets of health and science that make up the content of a newspaper.

• Find stories about accidents and write safety tips on how they could have been prevented. Write a skit to demonstrate your safety tips to the rest of the class.

• Pretend you are living 200 years from now. What has happened to the world because of pollution? Write a news article telling about this future world. (Review news stories in this week’s newspaper to learn the elements of news writing style.)

• Design a newspaper advertisement for a health care agency to run in your local newspaper.

• Give each student a paper plate. Ask them to find pictures to paste on the plate that would create a healthy meal. Stress good nutrition.
