The COVID19 crisis brings home the importance of learning about new diseases and how we can protect ourselves and populations. This set of five activities uses video and simulations to engage students as disease detectives and public health decision-makers as they learn science concepts related to microbes and immunity.

The entire teacher guide can be downloaded as PDF or the activities and simulations can be carried out online.

The NIH Curriculum Supplement Series examines important human health topics using hands-on and discovery-oriented approaches.
