Abstract: In this media-based lesson, upper level high school students will analyze the physical, chemical and health risk similarities between lead and mercury. Then they assemble information about the presence of lead in chocolate and mercury in fish, along with the healthy chemicals in those foods. Students synthesize the information by role-playing a physician/patient scenario. The EHP article links are provided in the lesson. This is a 12-page PDF.
