Students are introduced to the processes of the innate immune system and how it responds to immune system challenges. Using a castle and moat model throughout, the students demonstrate how the innate immune system works. Activities include pop-up glossaries, data tables, and statistical analyses. Students create a multimedia resource to demonstrate their understanding of how the innate immune system works and watch an animation: The Innate Immune System.
