Since my ESL students were researching the continent of Africa in World Geography, the decision to make this project cross-curricular was a good opportunity to link Science and Geography together as the topic in Science class was diseases. I gave the students a project to research African diseases to better get acquainted with illnesses. Of course, more can be added at teacher's discretion. The student's had fun with this, especially looking for pictures/images that represented their disease. They also presented this at the end, and explained what they had found.
We had to guide them in finding the right information, and also relied on the Mayo Clinic website as well as WebMD.
