Canadian Contributions in Human Health
This is Part 4 of the series of lesson plans on microorganisms and human health. In this lesson, students will learn of the incredible works accomplished by Dr. Armand Frappier. Much of this information is provided by the Armand-Frappier Museum itself. Connecting curriculum content with Canadian work is an important part of teaching in Canada, and this lesson provides a clear and interesting link between the lesson plans from parts 1 through 3 with the works of Dr. Frappier.

This lesson should cover roughly 1 class period and should be supported by any additional class references (textbooks, teacher notes, etc...). It is best suited for Grade 11/12 or Secondary 5/CEGEP Biology, but it may also be incorporated into classes on Human Health, Food Nutrition, and Canadian History.

Enjoy!

Laboratory manipulations by Dr. Frappier
At a time when borrowing on credit was not common, Dr. Frappier took out a loan in order to study at the Institut Pasteur in Paris. He arrived at this "Hotbed of discoverers" in the fall of 1932, in order to work with the best.

Suggested Activity
The lesson is rich in both history and significance and offers an opportunity to incorporate imagination with content knowledge. A suggestion for an activity would be to have students create a time line on the subject of Dr. Frappier. Using the images and information from this lesson plan, students could work in small groups to organize and display the lesson's topic in a visually pleasing and accurate medium.

Here's an idea! Check out the website www.tiki-toki.com. On it, you can create magnificent and interactive time lines that can include pictures and videos! Create one for Dr. Frappier, model the process and final product to your students, then assign them to Canadian scientists from whom they can create their own Tiki-toki projects. This is a fun and engaging way to connect your students with Canadian history!

Learning Objectives

Students will
- examine how microorganisms interact with other living organisms
- understand how human health is affected by microorganisms
- analyze different methods to protect oneself from potentially harmful effects of microorganisms
- explore some of the ways in which Canadians have contributed to the field of Science
