Diseases and Medicines – G4

Welcome again one and all and I hope this finds you in warm spirits and good health.


Grade 4 have been expanding our knowledge base this week on the topic of diseases.


We have been researching various diseases in small groups and asking a variety of questions in our research, i.e. Are all diseases contagious? If a disease is contagious, how does it spread? How do diseases affect our bodies?


We also looked at the differences between bacteria and viruses. We saw how bacteria can survive by themselves, however, viruses require a host body to live. And we were reminded how important it is to wash our hands, especially before eating.


Tomorrow we will take a look at plants again. This time focusing on medicinal plants and asking which plants are medicinal and how do they help us?


Thank you for reading and hope you have a nice week.
