Lessons on environmental health can be integrated throughout the school curriculum. In chapter one, we first situate the book within the conceptual constructs of the curriculum goals of the National Institute for Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) in the United States, which funded developing and implementing the curriculum described. Second, we provide an overview of environmental health along with some of the key themes and concepts that are introduced in the lessons, including environmental agents, toxins and toxicants, dose response, and action strategies that can be taken to reduce exposure risks. Third, we highlight a few of the literally hundreds of lessons developed. Finally, we provide examples of suggested activities in the following chapters that may be adapted for use in schools throughout the world.
