Viruses/Infectious Diseases: What's Really Bugging You?

Middle school life science or health classes listen to an audio, visit websites, read different articles, and participate in a class-wide simulation about the spread of viruses. The lesson doesn't get into the mechanics of how viruses replicate, but rather focuses on the spread of infectious disease, why it is different to control, and how the illnesses can be prevented. It is a nice way to integrate technology with a lab activity.
