As an introduction to the Defence Against Diseases Unit (Topic 6.3 from the DP IB Biology course) students had 15 minutes to prepare a short powerpoint on an infectious disease.
The main objective of this activity was the understanding that there are different:
- Types of disease (bacterial, viral, fungal, etc)
- Modes of transmission (droplets, vectors, contact, etc)
- Human Protective Barriers (skin, saliva, tears, ear wax, etc…)
A good job considering the short amount of time given. All information might not be 100% accurate but the objectives were reached.
Thanks Mr. Andrew Thomas for being the inspiration of this activity
