Year 8 Diseases Project

Isn’t this a great infographic about Smallpox? It came from AJC1 at FlickrCC

Your task is to research a disease of your choice and answer the following questions in your own words:

4. Is it spread by vectors?
4. How is the disease treated?

Make sure you have a Title slide with your first name only and the topic of study and a page for all your References at the end. Then upload your slideshow to Slideshare and embed the slideshow into a post on your blog.
