The lessons were developed for the Environment Module and the Air Pollution unit of P.U.L.S.E. Promoting Understanding and Learning for Society & Environmental Health curriculum project. PULSE is funded by an NCRR NIH SEPA award #R25RR016260.

The PULSE curriculum is organized around major projects that demonstrate student learning while students explore the relevance of the content material to their community. PULSE emphasizes finding answers through scientific processes, library research, on the Internet and from other people. PULSE lessons are selected or designed so that students develop or refine invaluable skills while they are introduced to content. Every effort is made to integrate the content areas of science, English, social studies, and math in such a way that students understand the relationship among these disciplines and gain insight into the way the real world works. This curriculum is coming online soon here.
