        Libby, Montana: Raise Awareness About Potentially Dangerous Attic Insulation

        This lesson plan is designed to be used in conjunction with the film Libby, Montana, a film that details the tragic struggle of a small town whose residents were exposed to a toxic form of asbestos from its local mine. This same form of asbestos is estimated to be present in the attic insulation of approximately 35 million homes across the United States. This lesson mobilizes students to reach out to members of their community to educate them about the potential health risks associated with this insulation and safety precautions that should be observed.
