Students research online to answer and develop questions about immune system, create Powerpoint presentation to share information with classmates, and assimilate information into pictorial and/or graphical description of immune system.
Students identify the function and different parts of the immune system. In this biology lesson, students role play the spread of diseases. They explain how the body fights these diseases.
Students research online to answer and develop questions about immune system, create Powerpoint presentation to share information with classmates, and assimilate information into pictorial and/or graphical description of immune system.
Students investigate the immune system, and how stress affects the immune system. They participate in a Webquest, explore various websites, answer discussion questions, and locate newspaper articles on ways to stay healthy during the holidays.
Student discuss the effect of HIV on the immune system. In this human body activity, students research the immune system and how the HIV virus weakens it. They create a bulletin board showing how HIV is transmitted. 
Learners discover the human immune system and how it responds to foreign invaders viruses. They role play how the immune system responds to a virus.
Students study the different facets of the Human immune system, including the functions of all the different organs in the immune system.
Take a few minutes out of your lesson plan to go on a journey through the immune system. This five-minute video clip presents a fantastic description of the immune system. With clear narration and wonderful graphics and animations, your class will definitely benefit from watching this video.
When you work with school children, teaching about immunity and illness prevention is a priority! This approach includes a discussion, kid-friendly online articles, a creative writing assignment, and a quiz on the role of leukocytes and the immune system. Though the teacher's guide was published in 2006, the home website has been updated since that time. A video, quiz, and other activities have been added, but the titles on this document may not exactly match the titles on the website. You might want to bookmark the links prior to sending learners to the computer lab in order to maximize time.
Fifth graders inspect the basic functions of the immune system and determine how viruses and bacteria invade the immune system. They also explore what happens to the immune system in outer space.
Learners explore various theories about laughter, laughter's effects on our mental health, and the benefits of laughter to our immune system.
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 examine the roles of the immune system in keeping the body healthy. They see how engineers contribute to this process by creating antibiotics, and vaccinations. They discuss how an astronauts' immune system may be suppressed during a space flight. They complete an activity in which they design a thermometer and complete a temperature conversion chart.
Students investigate the immune system. In this immune system lesson, students explore the immune system through participating in a WebQuest. After completing the WebQuest, students create a video documentary or chart.
Students discover how viruses effect living organisms. Focusing on HIV, they explain why it is unique and how it attacks the immune system. They simulate the spread of viruses through an experiment using water containing sodium carbonate poured from one cup to another. Then they try to determine in which cup the virus began once the cups are tested with phenolphthalein.
Students examine how the human immune system responds to germs and explain what a fever is. They design a thermometer in order to further explore temperature before completing a temperature conversion worksheet. They detail the work of engineers in helping the immune system.
Students develop an experiment to test a hypothesis. They use their knowledge of antigen-antibody specificity to develop a hypothesis. Students articulate that the antibody-antigen specificity is one part of the immune system. They develop questions around the components of the immune system.
Students view a video that presents how viruses attack the body and how the body's immune system responds. They simulate the spread of an infectious disease and establish the identity of the original carrier.
Seventh graders explore ways in which they become sick. They find out ways that there bodies fight off bacteria. Students watch a video from the Magic School Bus series:"Inside Raphie." After reviewing video students can openly discuss there bodies and how the body's immune system automatically fights off germs. They then follow up the video with an experiment in which jellybeans are used and each student exchanges the jellybeans with their classmates.
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.
