CTE


This lesson introduces students to the concept of One Health by applying different diseases, infections, and issues to humans, animals, and their environment. Students have to take examples of One Health and try to come up with their own definition. They also have to research and present their own One Health example with statistics of how it impacts humans and animals. In addition introducing concepts like ecosystem to students, this lesson is also intended to be used as a way to get students interested in NC State ASSIST Center’s One Health Challenge. This gives students an opportunity to be informed about diseases, infections, or other health problems, and to get them to solve a One Health related issue by creating a wearable device to monitor human and animal health.
This two day lesson provides an introduction into a unit about Scatter plots and Lines of Best Fit. It is designed for a Math 1 course, but could be modified for other Math or Technology courses as well. By the end of the unit, the students will have gone through the Engineering Design Process. However, in these introductory lessons, they will not have completed the whole process.
This lesson plan will provide an opportunity for students to apply what they have learned about 3D shapes, how light travels, and earth conservation to make an energy saving structure.

Math


This unit is created for students with a basic understanding of computer coding. Students will build and test a coding program to turn an LED light on and off using an Arduino Uno board. The students will connect the hardware to a breadboard, program the code using Arduino software, test the system, adapt variations in blinking times, evaluate their results, and share observations with their classmates.
In this lesson, students will design a tiny house in a city of their choice that is as environmentally-friendly as possible while staying on budget. This project is designed to not only evaluate the students’ understanding of the Engineering Design Process, but to also enhance their understanding of their impact on the global community

This lesson is an introduction to the NCSU ASSIST Center One Health Challenge. Use the following information to guide students on an exploration of the One Health mission and discuss how all organisms are interconnected. Students will define wordwide health issues, list global health problems, and ask an expert how they can potentially solve these global health problems.

Agriculture


This lesson will identify some of the vegetables that are produced on a farm and their nutritional value. Next, the students will identify vegetables that are familiar to them and some that are not familiar. Lastly, the students will design and implement a Supervised Agriculture Experience project which is a teacher supported project where the student will create small garden of their own and document their experience from start to finish. This experience will mirror what a farm to table would look like in the classroom.
Humans, animals and the environment…we are all connected. The One Health Initiative integrates a variety of disciplines in a united front at a local, national and global level to address a multitude of health issues. Students will research the One Health Initiative and create a Microsoft document based on their findings. Students will include a table, SmartArt, chart, and illustrations in their document.

Biology


This lesson guides students to explore One Health and global connectivity. Students will look at worldwide health issues and create a solution to a global health problem.

The students will connect the hardware to a breadboard, program the code using Arduino software, test the system, adapt variations in blinking times, evaluate their results, and share observations with their classmates.
In this project students will use a variety of 21st century skills to plan a project, prepare and present a lesson, work as a team, and learn basic programming skills using the Arduino platform. *Note: this lesson is intended for a class where at least some of the students have programming experience.

The One Health Initiative is a local, national and global collaborative effort of multiple disciplines to attain optimal health for people, the environment, and animals. In this lesson plan student will explore the One Health Initiative, and use their knowledge, skills, and interests to try and make a positive global impact.
