AVADIN – Day 16 – Flu Shot Edition

As we enter Flu season,it becomes imperative to make the students aware of just how easily a cold is spred. I find this next video to be a great intro both a Math and Health problems –

It’s important for students to be able to rationalize fears about what is happening around the world. You can touch on subjects likes vaccination/outbreaks and discuss what precautions we need to take.

Lesson Ideas:

  1. How long would it take to infect a class, school, community, country? (math probability)
  2. Why washing hands is important? Health precautions in class
  3. A look at how outbreaks happen… Move onto current crises like Ebola.
