    Directions: Create a comic strip showing the actions of the immune system. Be creative,
    and try to think of a unique analogy for how the immune system fights off foreign
    invaders/germs.

    Show the actions of the following body defenses and their role in the immune system.
    You must demonstrate how these defenses function to fight disease.

    antibodies                             antigens                      B-cells
    T-cells                                lymph nodes                   mucus
    skin                                   vaccines                      white blood cells
    tears                                  macrophages                   phagocytes
    saliva                                 stomach acid                  interferon
    fever/elevated temperature

    You may use whatever characters you would like to demonstrate the actions of the
    immune system.
    Your cartoon strip must be constructed of several panels and presented on one side of an
    8.5 X 11 sheet of paper. It should be colored and outlined in black ink. You will not be
    graded on artistic talent, but you WILL be graded on neatness and effort. Cut out the
    grade check box strip below (left) and attach to the back of your strip when you turn it in.
    This is for teacher grading.
