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.
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 plan, 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.
Students 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 immune system. In this biology lesson plan, students explore illustrations that show how viruses can appear as foreign invaders in the blood. Students also role play how the immune system responds to a virus.
Student discuss the effect of HIV on the immune system. In this human body lesson, students research the immune system and how the HIV virus weakens it. They create a bulletin board showing how HIV is transmitted.

Your health class reads two biographical stories: one about a girl who has allergies and the other about a girl who has asthma. They watch a quick cartoon on the KidsHealth website about immunity and take the related online quiz. You will certainly want computers with Internet access for each class member or small group. A ton of resource links are embedded! After the online exploration, groups collaborate to craft a brochure about one of these two immune system conditions. 
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.
Students explore various theories about laughter, laughter's effects on our mental health, and the benefits of laughter to our immune system.
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.
A fantastic slideshow that has images, details, definitions and trivia to accompany each structure and response involved with the immune system. The slides are very useful for all levels of the immune response. A complete sets of notes could be generated by your students from this PowerPoint. information is separated concerning cells and specialized roles. There are also a couple of slides about the HIV virus and AIDS.
Students begin the lesson by discussing what they already know about their immune system. In groups, they participate in a true and false game using the facts and myths of HIV/AIDS. They discuss how the disease is affecting their country and identify what can be done to sto the spread of it.
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 identify the types of cells that are important in the immune system. They investigate the different mechanisms used by white blood cells as they protect the body from foreign invaders. Students are given five case studies, they are asked to write a script describing the scenario.
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 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.
Seventh graders explain the role of white blood cells in fighting infections. In 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.
