This model would be used in a classroom for both the exposition and reinforcement of a topic. This model would be used to determine which type of disease is more contagious (bacterial or viral). This model would also be used to reinforce the scientific method. The questions on the accompanying worksheet follow the format of the scientific method.

Two extra agents, the nurse and immunity, were created to be used in the following lesson (vaccines and antibodies). These agents can be easily drawn in to the worksheets and we have ensured that their behaviors function as they should.
