High schoolers conduct Internet research on an autoimmune disease, and present the information in a PowerPoint presentation.
Anatomy and Physiology Study Questions on Immunology
In this anatomy and physiology study question worksheet, students define 20 terms related to the immune system. They answer 19 short answer questions that deal with immunology, autoimmune diseases, and the components and cells related to the immune system.
Apoptosis: Programmed Cell Death During Development
Learners model the plasticity of neural pathways for memory in the brain. They simulate the cell activity according to dots on cards that they are given. They complete various simulations of different cell combinations.
Biomanufacturing: An Inquiry Lesson in Growing Cells
Biomanufacturing and genetic engineering are very common practices around the world, but what exactly does it entail? Young geneticists find out through a series of labs, a discussion, and an in-class presentation to report their findings. There are lab procedures and a PowerPoint presentation included in the materials; although the PowerPoint is called Biotechnology in North Carolina Today, it is very general and could be used in any state. The materials included with the lesson plan are very text-heavy, so they may need some modification for English learners or students with special needs.
Testing the Specificity of Antibodies
High schoolers determine the specificity of antibodies to antigens. In this immune system and antibodies lesson plan, students use a Strep A diagnostic kit to test how the Strep A antibody reacts to the antigen found in the cell wall of the bacterium Streptococcus A. They also test Streptococcus group C and a sample from the table top to see how they react to the antibody for Strep A. High schoolers analyze their results.
Bisphenol A and Diabetes
Pupils summarize the data that is displayed and examine how bisphenol A behaves and how it contributes to diabetes. Learners also study an article and interpret line graphs.
Biomedical Engineering and Diabetes
Young scholars discuss diabetes, it causes, and old and current technology to control the disease. They discuss biomedical engineering and new technology to control the disease. The examine the various types of insulin delivery systems and demonstrate an understanding of each type of delivery system.
Biomedical Engineering and Diabetes
Students compare and contrast the three types of diabetes. For this technology lesson, students identify the causes of this disease. They investigate ways to deliver insulin to the body and present their findings in class.
Investigating the Method by Which the Body Defends Against Pathogens
Students explore disease caused by bacteria and viruses, how they are transmitted, and how they exert their effects on their hosts. They explain how diseases, such as AIDS, are spread by exponential growth.
In this vocabulary worksheet, students fill in the blanks for the correct word and answer definition questions about each word. Students complete 4 pages with 18 questions and 6 vocabulary words each.
Human Population's Response to Re-emerging and Emerging Infectious Diseases
Students examine the human population response to microbial diseases. In this disease lesson plan students observe population trends, write about a scientist and evaluate and defend current treatments for infectious diseases.
In this biology worksheet, students examine the interrelationship between the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland and look at extreme functions.
Travel Brochure of the Body Systems
Young scholars review body systems and their functions. As a representative of the Duodenum Dynamics Ad Agency, they create a travel brochure for the Anatomy Travel Bureau.
Take Calcium and Vitamin D
Students explain the roles of calcium and vitamin D in our bodies. They determine the recommended intakes of calcium and vitamin D. Students then identify good sources of calcium and vitamin D. They plan a calcium and vitamin D rich diet plan.
Seventh graders explain the role of white blood cells in fighting infections. In this life science lesson plan, 7th graders create flow charts showing the immune response process. They act out and play a game to simulate actions of the immune system.
Learners study and research drug-resistant bacteria and the use of antibiotics. Through the use of the internet, and other resources, students gather information and create a board game. They discuss bacteria, antibodies, antibiotics and the cells of the immune system.
It's a waterfall of information on body systems; it just keeps coming! You will find 54 slides on the immune system, 17 on the reproductive system, 24 on the circulatory and respiratory systems, and 15 on the digestive system. Be warned that some of the photographs are graphic: a picture of an arthritis-ravaged hand, an ovary releasing an ovum, spina bifida, and the hand of a highly malnourished child to name a few. If your biologists are mature enough, this is a practical, yet poignant presentation.
Immune System - Worksheet & Reading Guide
High school biologists produce written answers to twenty-five questions about human immunity. This instructional activity was designed as a reading guide for a specific textbook; however, you can use it for any general biology textbook or as a unit review. The material covered is comprehensive and typical for this topic.
"Asthma: Stopping Attacks Before They Start"
Students study facts about living with asthma. They examine medical treatments and lifestyle changes that can improve the life of asthmatics. They determine the cause and effect relationship.
The Code of Life
Students study genes, DNA and medical research. They watch "The Code of Life" video and answer discussion questions regarding the transcription and translation of DNA and how errors in these processes and mutations in DNA can produce non-functional proteins that cause problems for an organism.
