Access to Power Point for each group of students
Divide the students into groups and have them prepare a Power Point presentation about heart disease. They should use at least two sources in their research and focus on one or two aspects of the disease. Their report should include the causes, symptoms, treatment, and ideas for prevention. Students should then present their reports to the class.
You could challenge students to choose one or two of the examples for preventing heart disease that are given. They could write a short action plan about how they will implement those ideas into their everyday life.
