Today in class we began Viruses vs. Bacteria – Part 1. We asked the question: Why can we get sick multiple times? To answer this question we looked at how a virus invades our body by viewing the NPR video “Flu Attack! How a Virus Invades Your Body“.
Afterwards, we diagrammed this process, as a class, in our notebooks and took some notes.
We applied our new knowledge of viruses in two ways. First, we completed a writing piece entitled “Why Am I Sick again?!” Second, we read a short passage and highlighting information related to viruses in 1 color, bacteria in another color and organizing this information into a Venn Diagram.
Check out our interactive notebook spread for today! Instructions can be found in our class Prezi.
