Universe Within, The

Ideas from Teachers


(Gr. 9-12)
I show the immune system section of NOVA's "The Universe Within" program and have students define the following terms as they watch the program:

antigen
white blood cell
phagocyte
macrophage
T-cell
B-cell
antibody
thymus
bone marrow

Following the video, I have students create a concept map to show how these concepts are related.
