Skin Cancer and Sun Safety (Community Environmental Health kit)

Catalog #STO-CEH8

Explore how UV radiation exposure increases skin cancer risk.

Time To Complete Time to complete: Approximately 20-30 minutes + discussion time

Key Learning Objective:  UV (ultraviolet) radiation is the main environmental risk factor for skin cancer.

  • Use the “ABCDE” characteristics of skin cancer to determine whether a young woman should have a doctor check an unusual mole.
  • Use photosensitive beads and sun safety pictures to explore ways to prevent UV radiation exposure.
NOTE: Science Take-Out Community Environmental Health (CEH) kits are simplified versions of our “regular” kits (shortened/modified activities and lower literacy).

CEH kits use hands-on activities to engage diverse community audiences in learning about environmental health issues. The kits also encourage discussions about ways to reduce exposures to environmental health hazards.
