Cold and Flu Prevention

My students need gloves, tissues, hand sanitizer and some chemicals for upcoming labs.

My Students

The human body is an amazing compilation of organ systems that while studied, makes the students stand in awe of how it works.

My students are a great combination of those interested in investigating a medical career and those focused on studying for their IB Biology exam.

I have a wide variety of ethnicity's and multiple nationalities. The human body brings us all together in our study of it's function and structure.

My Project

Due to budget cuts we have soap and rough paper towels in our classroom. When a student has a cold they either need to leave the room or use the rough paper towels. Sometimes the school bathrooms are out of soap. We would like to have hand sanitizers and tissues to help keep colds and flu in check this fall/winter. The other items like gloves will aide in several dissection labs.

Preventing diseases and helping my students be safe in the classroom as well as experience a couple key physiology tests will aide in their understanding of the human body and the importance of keeping it healthy.
