Noncommunicable/Communicable Diseases

Purpose of Activity:

To have students engaged in an activity where they research noncommunicable and communicable diseases.

Suggested Grade Level:


Materials Needed:

Videotaping equipment, paper and pencil, assessment sheets, access to the Internet

Description of Idea

Small groups of students (e.g., 3-4) were asked to complete a research project on either a communicable or noncommunicable disease. Unique to this project was that they had to use at least one internet web site as a reference. Each group then presented the project orally to their classmates. These presentations were then videotaped. Thanks to the parents who agreed to let us post this example on the internet.
