Development of Disease and Infection

The steps of the infection process are explored by examining the relationship between disease and the immune system. Pop up glossaries and drag and drop diagrams are used to practice the steps of infection. Students choose a disease to research, then write a simulated blog post or pop science magazine article and create a presentation about the development of that disease. Students read a passage: The Eternal Arms Race: The Constant Battle Between Pathogens and the Immune System.
