Grades 3-8 Autoimmune Curriculum

Meet Your Body’s Immune System

Teach your students the facts about autoimmune diseases with free Common Core-aligned activities.

The comprehensive curriculum materials include teacher guides, information on how the immune systems works and how an unhealthy, malfunctioning immune system prompts the immune response, student research and report projects and activities, and a parent send-home component.

The curriculum also is designed to educate teachers about ADs. Researchers believe the school environment may contain more triggers for ADs than other work environments, putting teachers at higher risk of developing these diseases.
