The Body's Natural Defences

Have you ever wondered that if there are harmful microbes everywhere then why aren't we ill more often? The answer is that our body is very clever and has many natural defences against microbial attack.

This section does not contain a lesson plan but will provide you, as the teacher, with background information on immunity.

There is also a detailed presentation and animations illustrating how the body fights infection on a daily basis which can be used to introduce the final two sections of the resource to your class.
