Virtual Activities

To help support teachers who are using the Great Diseases Curriculum in their virtual classrooms, we have begun to modify some of our favorite activities to be used virtually. It is our hope that these modified activities can be used by teacher with minimum prep work, while still being hands-on and engaging for students.

Below, you will find a list of the activities from the Cancer modules and instructions on accessing the activities. We would love to hear any feedback or ideas you have!

Web Activity
Identifying cancer risk and diagnoses

This activity provides an interactive learning experience in which students engage with cancer biology concepts that they come across throughout the cancer module from the lens of 2D and 3D graphics to reinforce understanding. It emphasizes risk factors; diagnostic tests versus screens; and cancer pathology, exploring the topics of “grade,” “stage,” and “metastasis”. This activity can be used as a stand-alone activity or aligned with the following lessons in the cancer module:
