Course EES 132: Environmental Geology


Mercury and Me is a lesson plan for elementary age students to understand how mercury effects the world and those who live in it. This lesson plan looks at the simple aspects of mercury so that the students will be able to understand better. They will then be able to perform activities about the lesson and be able to test their friends and students. This lesson is produced in hope that the past will not be repeated by having mercury in the content of certain items. The children are the gateway to the future and it is my hope to give them all the information they need to make a difference.
