Lesson 3: Fight the Flu: Acting

This Lesson 3: Fight the Flu: Acting lesson plan also includes:

In the third of a three-part lesson plan, learners synthesize the data they've collected about how the flu is spread and create an action plan. Groups work together to develop an anti-flu public safety campaign of their choosing; some suggestions include hand-washing posters, replacing light switches with motion detectors, and installing hand sanitizing stations aroundschool. Kids are encouraged to come up with their own ideas, as well. After the action plans are developed, they are presented in class, and each classmate helps the presenting group refine the plan by filling out the evaluation worksheet attached.
