Product Description
Immune system unit. Immune system labs and activities. Vaccine research.
I love teaching about the amazing immune system and with this resource you will too! This is a must have unit with a range of activities that will engage and motivate your middle school students as they learn about the immune system. No need for nutrient agars or incubators. All the labs in this package can be completed with household materials. The inquiry question for the unit is Why do I get sick? Students will learn about how the body responds to pathogens and they will have the opportunity to illustrate their learning. They will research scientists who made significant contributions to stopping the spread of disease. They will learn through play with I have Who has and Germ bingo. Comprehensive notes in Cornell style, a vocabulary cut and paste as well as a review worksheet are also included. The unit is completed with the criteria and rubric for research on a disease of the student’s choosing, either from the modern period or medieval period. If you want your students excited and fascinated about their learning, you want to add this package to your unit. The package includes
