Primary: Body Defences (Immunity)
Produced by the Health Protection Agency, this e-Bug resource helps students to look at the different ways the body defends itself against harmful infections. Extensive teacher guidance and stimulus materials help to cover topics including:
• How the skin forms a barrier that prevents microbes entering the body
• How white blood cells eat microbes inside the body
• How antibodies, produced by white blood cells, fight infections.
Some of these materials are suitable for more able children.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
