Young Lives At Risk

In May 2008, The Washington Post published a five-day series on childhood obesity, Young Lives at Risk: Our Overweight Children. Students, parents, the school and greater community need to address the issue of childhood obesity to create healthy citizens now and in the future. This 37-page online guide provides reprints of many of the Post articles, graphics and photographs. Activities, a close reading guide, insight into the creation of the poster/graphic, and resources are provided for use in health, mathematics, art, government, English and mathematics classes.
