Fooling with Nature

Fooling with Nature is based on a Frontline episode on PBS made by WGBH of Boston. It is about man-made chemicals that may be hurting the environment and even humans. It has articles that are special reports detailing several incidences in which chemicals may be causing harm to humans such as a report on how breast cancer may be linked to several chemicals that are thought to block certain hormones. It has a picture gallery, which is linked to explanations, documenting several incidences of harm to the environment. Students could go to this site and explore and learn what is happening in our environment. It could be tied into the classroom under organism's interaction with the environment.
