This PowerPoint begins with a quick tour of infectious diseases from the past and the millions of people that have suffered as a result. Some step by step notes describe how infectious diseases are spread. Joseph Lister and his advancements are described. The immune system is introduced in a step by step process with unfolding visuals. The first line of defense (skin and mucous) are described with many exciting visuals. The 2nd line of defense is described and connections to the military / war zone in the body begins. This creates a stunning presentation but also relates aspects of the immune system to that of roles in modern warfare. The inflammatory response is described with some brief attention to Anaphylaxis. The 3rd line of defense describes the battle within, starting with interleukins, Leukocytes: White blood cells (made in bone marrow),Phagocytes, Lymphocytes:B Cells, T Cells, and antibodies. immunity and vaccines, A link to a great video about the flu (20 minutes) is provided as well as virus prevention and allergies. Students create a step by step drawing and then a video link helps them label their drawings. The drawing is quite advanced and complicated but helps bring the whole lesson together. A series of hidden box games conclude this section of the PowerPoint where each slide removes some of the shapes uncovering the picture beneath. Students try to guess the picture. This first part is really neat, full of amazing visuals and the step by step process is certainly going to spark conversation and great questions.
The next part focuses on HIV and AIDS. This section begins with a brief description of HIV and AIDS origin as well as describes the acronyms. A neat visual quiz has the students try to pick the two people that have HIV from a line-up of people. Each person is very different. In the end, the students realize that you can't tell who is carrying HIV. How you can contract HIV is described in a step by step process with many visuals. Abstinence vs. prevention is described with an emphasis on abstinence. A really neat activity is provided with directions and visuals that has the student participate in a virus simulation. Students all take a cup of water. One or two of the cups have some baking soda mixed in. The students are assigned roles such high risk, medium risk, low risk, and no risk (abstinence). Students then swap fluids by mixing the water with partners as described in the slideshow. Questions follow and students work backwards when teacher tests each person with litmus paper. If the paper turns green the student contracted the virus. AIDS is then described and students have a strong background of the immune system at this point.
Other STD's follow HIV and AIDS. Students learn what type of sexual activity can contract STD's over some slides. Some common STD's are then provided with visuals. The visuals are graphic but not anything that will get you in trouble. I spent a lot of time finding gross pictures that get up close to the puss and ooze but don't really allow the viewer to know where you are on the genitals. Students learn about each STD one at a time. A couple of class nursery rhymes break-up the gross pictures and information where the students sing along and learn at the same time. An optional activity has the students partake in a dramatic skit performance of an infectious disease. Two more hidden box games conclude the PowerPoint. This is a really neat PowerPoint that will have your students engaged and also teaches some very important lessons.
This PowerPoint includes critical notes (Red Slides), exciting visuals, challenge questions, activities with directions and more. Text is usually placed at the top of the slide so it can be read from all angles of a classroom. Color coded slides, as well as a shade technique is used to increase student focus and allows the teacher to control the pace of the lesson. These PowerPoints are meant to be interactive as possible and ask many questions, provides built in review opportunities, explains directions to activities, and much more.
