3 Downloads 16 Files

The Let’s Talk Science and Health resources provide teachers with a highly interactive set of science teaching resources which encourage discussion about health related science issues in the classroom. These science teaching and learning materials help to develop the important skills of expressing informed and balanced opinions based on understanding and evidence. Find out more about the project itself here.

OVERVIEW

The Liver and Alcohol Activity could be used when pupils are studying diet and digestion, as part of their science course, or when they are learning about the effects of alcohol as part of their PSE programme. The activity aims to help pupils develop an understanding of the importance of a healthy liver and to consider some of the health and social issues associated with alcohol consumption. The activities encourage discussion on the many ways in which alcohol affects the lives of young people and asks them to talk about some of the dangers of drinking too much.
