This website by the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health teaches students about alternative health practices. The website breaks down alternative health practices into 4 broad categories - nutritional, psychological, physical, and other. Then, it provides specific examples of alternative health practices in each category. By clicking on the specific example, the website redirects you to a page that defines and describes that practice in more detail. This website is great because it provides diagrams; charts; embedded links to additional information; general alternative health practices; and alternative health practices specific to groups like military personnel, cancer patients, and cancer survivors. As an interactive activity, students can separate into small groups. Each member can research a specific alternative health practice like massage therapy, acupuncture, or meditation. After a brief time window like 10-15 minutes, the students can share their findings with the group in the form of a Prezi, Google Slides, or speech. The goal of this activity is for students to become familiar with alternative health practices, be able to list and discuss specific practices, and possibly use some of these practices in their lives.

This activity is about planetary climate. Once familiar with the factors that determine a planet's surface temperature, learners will use an interactive spreadsheet model of a planet's atmosphere to determine if greenhouse gases, luminosity of the source, the distance of the planet from the source and the albedo of the planet can be manipulated so that the average surface temperature on Mars or Venus could support human life. Learners will then be asked to make some conclusions about these methods and suggest improvements for the spreadsheet model (see related resources for link to this model). The activity requires use of Microsoft Excel software. This is Activity D in the fourth module, titled "How do Atmospheres Affect Planetary Temperatures?," of "Earth Climate Course: What Determines a Planet's Climate?."
