Understanding: Viruses

Students review what they can recall about viruses. They are explained that they are going to work on a project in which they suggest a useful purpose of a virus. Students use print research materials and the Internet to add to their knowledge about viruses. They work in groups, in the groups members imagine that they are part of a team of scientists assigned to stop a local weed epidemic by genetically engineering a virus that targets a local pest plant, or weed.
