Hypothermia - resources and lesson plans

This first aid teaching module on hypothermia is designed to help students to learn more about this potentially life-threatening condition brought on by prolonged exposure to excessively cold conditions.

This lesson plan helps students to understand the dangers of hypothermia.

By the end of the lesson, students will:
