Make learning about viruses fun with this easy, straight forward mini-project! Students will be challenged to select a type of virus and create either a dating profile poster or a dating video for that virus. Students will integrate facts about the virus, the lytic cycle, and the immune system into their creative project.
Students will have a blast as they help a virus "find its perfect host cell." They will also enjoy the thorough yet approachable rubric, which will help them be aware of the academic expectations for the project.
In order to complete this project and have the time to be thoroughly creative, it is recommended that you provide the students with between 45 minutes to an hour of class time. It is also a good idea to allow students to continue working on the project at home.
Included in this file is the instructions page, which includes two actual student examples, and the rubric page.
