I Can List: Immune System
Goal: Bio.3.4.3
Develop a cause and effect model for the role of disease agents in natural selection
including evolutionary selection of resistance to antibiotics and pesticides in
various species, passive/active immunity, antivirals and vaccines.
 I can describe what a pathogen is and choose what type of pathogen from a list.
 I can define an antigen and antibodies. –
 I can identify a picture of an antibody.
 I can describe the difference between a B-cell and T-cell and how their actions.
 I can give examples of antigens –
 I can explain how antibodies work as part of the immune system.
 I can distinguish between active and passive immunity.
Active Immunity
Passive Immunity
 I can identify examples of active and passive immunity, both natural and
Active Immunity
Passive Immunity
 I can explain what an anti- viral is, and give an example of an antiviral?
 I can explain how antibiotics work?
 I can describe the action of a vaccine and compare and contrast the different
types of vaccines.
 I can explain how bacteria become antibiotic resistant.
 I can explain how antibiotic resistance is a problem
 I can explain why viruses are immune to antibiotics.
 I can explain how pests can become pesticide resistant.
