This is a lesson on the H1N1 virus. This lesson is applicable for students K-12. I would primarily use this lesson for grades 9-12. With the recent escalation of the WHO warning level and declaration of pandemic many students are confused and frightened.

You should familiarize yourself with the terms epidemic and pandemic, ways to prevent transmission of the flu and the current scope of the H1N1 virus. You should also be aware of what your school is doing to prevent the spread of H1N1.

All of this information can be found at the CDC website http://www.cdc.gov/h1n1flu/ or at the WHO website http://www.who.int/en/
