Class: Science Grade Level: Year/Grade 7 (Age 11-12) Lesson Duration: 45 minutes per day

Objectives

  1. Understand the importance of the immune system
  2. Identify the different types of immune cells and their functions
  3. Describe the process of how the immune system fights diseases
  4. Explain the differences between innate and adaptive immunity
  5. Analyze the effects of lifestyle on the immune system

Motivation

Day 1: Begin by asking the students if they have ever been sick. Ask them what happens when we have a cold or flu. Use their responses to introduce the immune system and its role in fighting disease.

Day 2: Show the students pictures of different immune cells and ask them to name them. Allow them to work in pairs or small groups and then share their responses with the entire class.

Day 3: Give the students a scenario where their body is under attack by a certain disease. Ask them to brainstorm how the body would fight off the disease. Discuss their responses as a class and how the immune system works in protecting our bodies.

Day 4: Use real-life examples to illustrate innate and adaptive immunity. For example, explain how a cut on our skin heals much faster than a broken bone because the skin's first line of defense is innate immunity, while broken bones require adaptive immunity.

Day 5: Have a class discussion on how lifestyle choices such as diet, exercise, and stress management can affect our immune system. Use videos and articles to support the discussion.

Day 5: How can we maintain a healthy immune system?

Homework

Day 1: Research and learn about how vaccines work and how they can help the body fight off diseases. Day 2: Watch a video on how germs spread and write a paragraph on how we can prevent the spread of germs. Day 3: Create a visual representation of the immune system and label its parts. Day 4: Write a paragraph explaining how smoking can negatively affect the immune system. Day 5: Research and learn about a disease that affects the immune system and write a report on it. Include symptoms, how the body fights it off, and any treatments.

Answers to Homework Questions: Day 1: Vaccines work by exposing the body to a small, harmless amount of a disease so that the immune system can create antibodies to fight off the disease in the future. Day 2: The spread of germs can be prevented by washing your hands frequently, covering your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing, and staying away from people who are sick. Day 3: The visual representation of the immune system should include bone marrow, the thymus, lymph nodes, spleen, white blood cells, and antibodies. Day 4: Smoking can damage the cilia in the respiratory tract, which help to keep germs and other harmful substances out of the body. It can also reduce the number of immune cells in the body, making it harder to fight off infections. Day 5: Students' reports will vary depending on the disease they choose to research. Teachers may provide a rubric to assess the quality of their report.
