Pathogens

Your project:

Research 3 diseases caused by a Virus and bacteria and 2 caused by a micro fungus.

Put this into a power point or some other way of presenting your results.

What to include?

1. What a pathogen is.

2.  For each microbe you can do the following:

  • The name of the pathogen.
  • How it is passed on to other animals/people – transferred.
  • A picture.

For those who want more

This is the extension work for the project:

Explain how the 3 different pathogens spread in a population, and what governments/ countries do to stop it from happening.

A good place to start is WHO ( World Health Organisation). These are the people responsible for keeping the spread of contagious diseases throughout the world. You could also use the major success story of small pox eradication.
