I had the privilege to talk to my 3 classes about the beast that is malaria. It is a killer that does not receive much recognition.
We looked at Malaria in Rwanda and Malaria Teaching Cards – Picture Flip Book and a 3 minute video on the “History of Malaria” >> Click HERE.
1st period /4th period – Some students had the opportunity to exchange video chats with Ms. Hoover while she is in Rwanda. So, they were able to be fully invested in the conversation. When Ms. Hoover was visiting last fall from her Peace Corps time in Rwanda, they were able to hear about her experiences and the impact of Malaria.
Yearbook includes older students and they were able to see the futuristic affect of malaria and the people that is involved.
According to the “Malaria in Rwanda” PowerPoint — This issue is a global issue that, even though the US (and other countries) are aware – their money (which is a small amount) only goes so far. Although this directly affects Rwanda- this needs to be a global focus!
The “Malaria Teaching Cards” were the fan favorite in my classes as the students could see the photos in 2 different languages. They loved the bright photos and they loved the visuals. They didn’t realize the importance of a mosquito net when sleeping and how the mosquitoes take the disease from one human to another and that is how malaria spreads.
Finally, the video was eye-opening for the students because of its quick-paced format. They were able to see specific people that were directly killed by the malaria virus as well as what we can do about the cause.
We need to become more knowledgeable!!! If you have any additional questions- feel free to ask or do your own research. I know that my kids were happy to have a small break within final review and learn about something that directly affects the future of the world!!
