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.
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.
Investigate the world of pathogens with this short-answer activity. Budding biologists are quizzed on pathogens, immunity, allergy, and antibiotics. Though the title is specific to a certain textbook, the questions are applicable to any biology unit relating to disease. Change the title and use this as a homework assignment or as a complete assessment of comprehension.
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.
Young scholars 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. Young scholars analyze their results.
