How do vaccines work? in Google Classroom

How do vaccines work?

Here are some suggested questions to answer after you watch the mini-lesson:

1. How do vaccines work?

2. What did this lesson make you curious about? What other questions do you have about vaccines?

Bonus Activity: Getting a vaccine isn't fun, but it's better than getting really sick! Think of other not-so-fun things that you do to stay healthy. For example, you brush your teeth every day. You go to bed early to get enough sleep. Now think like an inventor! What can you invent to make these healthy activities more fun? Maybe your toothbrush can light up and play a song while you brush your teeth! Or you can turn your bed into a fort. Draw or write about your fun and healthy inventions!

Now waddle like a penguin! How far can you go before dropping the “egg”? Challenge your friends to beat your record.
