Pandemic in the Classroom!

Help me give my students a class set of the board game Pandemic. This collaborative game helps students work together to save humanity and to understand the complexities of viruses, vectors, DNA and RNA.

My Students

Our coronavirus response has pushed learning online. We are seeing students come to our google classroom site where biology teachers are collaborating to provide engaging learning opportunities for students. Last week I invited students virtually to my kitchen where I showed them how to extract DNA from fruit using household ingredients. Students still want to learn about science.

Student questions guide the discussion every Friday as we dive into their thoughts about living through a pandemic.

We also have a weekly office hour to engage with students virtual face to virtual face. We continue to expand learning opportunities like suggesting science podcasts like Science Friday and apps like iNaturalist to students to expand their science engagement. However, most students are not engaging regularly and it will be great to be in the same classroom once again to help them stay motivated.

My Project

With online learning, I can set up the game on my screen and students cards will be selected and the play continues online during our virtual meets. With several games ordered, some can be loaned out to a different family for a week as well until the end of the school year.

When in-person school returns, we will still have the games to play in class and learn about infection as our phenomenon for learning about DNA, RNA and the central dogma.

This will be a great way to keep students knowledgeable and informed about real world topics in science!
