Students conduct Internet research on an autoimmune disease, and present the information in a PowerPoint presentation.
High school biologists produce written answers to twenty-five questions about human immunity. This worksheet 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.
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.
Students 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.
Activate the immune system in the brains of your biologists! This worksheet calls upon learners to explain the structure, function, and problems associated with the immune system. This worksheet is helpful for the advanced placement biology level.
Fourteen short-answer questions comprise this worksheet about the lymphatic system. It covers immunity, inflammation, and allergies. This worksheet is designed as a reading guide, but the questions are applicable to any unit on the immune system when covering human body systems.
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 are very text-heavy, so they may need some modification for English learners or young scholars with special needs.
Students 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. Students analyze their results.
The main concepts covered by this video are the complicated procedures that follow recognition of a foreign body by the immune system. Sal describes the roles of helper T cells and memory cells in controlling a response in the future.
Students 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.
Students compare and contrast the three types of diabetes. In 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.
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.
Students examine the human population response to microbial diseases. For this disease lesson 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.
Learners 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.
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. For this life science lesson, 7th graders create flow charts showing the immune response process. They act out and play a game to simulate actions of the immune system.
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.
Students 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.
