The Value of Vaccination
Explore the value of vaccination with "Making Vaccines" an interactive activity that allows your students to create six vaccines in a virtual laboratory, using a different technique to produce each one. Research vaccines for humans and pets and create pamphlets with information about each one.
All About Vaccines asks "Why do we need vaccines?" and teaches about the diseases that we get vaccinated for.
The Parents' Guide to Childhood Immunizations is a 68-page booklet that introduces parents and students to 14 childhood diseases and the 10 vaccines that can protect children from them. There is a screen-reader version that you can use in your classroom.
Have your students review the Immunization charts for children and adults. Ask them if they have been immunized? What diseases are they protected against and why?
