Immune System Day 2

  1.  Activity: Infection!  You are given a beaker with fluid in it that represents your body.  You will pour some of your fluid into another person’s beaker and they will transfer some of theirs back to you.  This represents “shaking hands”.  One person in the room is “infected” with a disease.  As you “shake hands” the disease will spread.  At the end of shaking hands with 3 people, you all go to the CDC (Center for Disease Control) and get tested.  Based on the people who were infected, you as a class must try to figure out who was the original “infected” person.
  2. Hand in your body systems worksheets.
  3. Work on your group projects.
  4. Video:  Immune System Part 2
