Middle School Lesson Plans - HIV / AIDS

Myth Busters: HIV Transmission PDF
This lesson is designed for 5th and 6th grade students as a scientific introduction to HIV/AIDS. Due to the sensitive nature of this topic and age of the audience, emphasis has been placed on the communicability of viruses, the distinction between a virus and a disease, and correction of misinformation associated with HIV/AIDS. This lesson plan is activity driven with quick checks for understanding throughout and a final product-based assessment.

High School Lesson Plans - HIV / AIDS

This lesson is designed for a 10th grade biology course. The lesson uses scientific research information to correct misconceptions, answer learning guides, and present posters on topics associated with HIV/AIDS. A review activity will then allow students to work together to summarize key points about HIV/AIDS, while simulating the contagiousness of a virus throughout the class.
