Grants in Action: Code Orange

Teachers: Lisa Greenwald, Jeanine Weiss, Mark McNeil, Lisa Marcotte, Linda Kimball


Description:

This is an interdisciplinary project for the Orange Team, made up of about 80-90 grade 7 students, in which they will make connections between four content subjects after reading the novel Code Orange by Caroline B. Cooney. During the science unit Viruses, Bacteria and Disease, students will read the novel in English class. In science class, they will research a viral or bacterial disease (just like the main character in the novel.) The project will allow students to see that science extends beyond textbooks, as they research disease and learn about its history. Students will also see the role math plays in tracking diseases such as the flu and the role epidemiologists play in collecting this data. Online resources as well as library books dealing with viral and bacterial diseases will help with the research that will result in completion of a Glogster (web based interactive poster) and a formal research paper. Ultimately the students will complete a science project on a disease, a research paper in English, a social studies activity, and a graphing activity in math.
