In this lesson, students watch the film 50/50 and learn from a genetic and biological standpoint how cancer originates, grows, and behaves. Students also look at a new study on using radio waves to combat cancer growth.
Some media may contain mature content. Discretion is advised when viewing with students.
First, assess what students already know about cancer. Ask the class: What is cancer? What does it do? What causes cancer? Have a discussion and clarify the information that students already know and address any misinformation the class may have.
