Introductory activities for microbes and disease. A PPT directing students to summarise information about various diseases in a table for easy reference and a set of cards with a paragraph on a disease. A good Directed Activity related to Text (DART) which encourages reading for purpose. Starter embedded in PPT.

    Thanks! Really useful powerpoint slides with diseases information. Like the idea that pupils design their own table for their research.
