PowerPoint presentation on Viral Structure.
This colorful presentation includes over 15 images of different types of viruses and includes the following information:
- a discussion of whether or not viruses are considered to be classified as living things
- descriptions of types of viruses (plant, animal and bacterial)
- general structure of viruses
- defining characteristics of viruses
- how viruses are spread
- some interesting virus facts
- a look at some well known viruses (influenza, HPV, HIV, Ebola, Noravirus)
Please see my site for the matching "Viral Structure PPT - Student Worksheet" that is available that is exactly the same as the presentation with blanks for students to fill in as they watch, discuss the presentation.
I have found these powerpoints to be great tools in the classroom as students have the opportunity to actually see and discuss images instead of simply words. I have sold this particular powerpoint to over 100 teachers in Canada and have had great reviews for my work.
