This unit is not for the faint of heart...BUT middle-schoolers (or even high schoolers) will LOVE it!!! Inspired by the Discovery series "Monsters Inside Me.â€ This mini unit take students through the weird, wonderful world of human ( and animal) parasites! Sure to grab and maintain their attention. Sources include: Discovery Channel, online news agencies, World Health Organization, and many more. You will not be disappointed in this unit! I designed and gathered the sources for this mini-unit as a beginning of the year activity to show my students reading is NOT boring.
