You Make Me Sick: Preparing to Play
Set a purpose for learning by letting students know what they’ll be able to accomplish by playing the game:
Explain some of the ways that people can avoid bacterial and viral infection
Describe the anatomy and functions of bacteria and viruses
Describe how bacteria and viruses reproduce and carry out life functions
Evaluate how lifestyle choices and environments (e.g., tobacco, drug, and alcohol use, amount of exercise, quality of air, and kinds of food) affect the immune system in the human body
You can project these objectives and have students reflect before and after game play on what they know and have learned.
