In this lesson, students will bring together everything they have learned. In order to teach this lesson, you do not have to have taught all the other lessons, but your students should, at a minimum, have worked through Lesson 1.

Students will:

  • Conduct research on microbes that cause infectious diseases
  • Create a poster that lists the agent, host, and environment for a disease
  • Present their findings to the class
