Project Purpose:  The purpose of the project was to have students do a project that others can learn from.  I also wanted them to be able to work on the classroom computers and collaborate with their classmates as well as do internet research and learn about diseases and disease preventrion.  It also gave them the opportunity to work on reading comprehension.
Procedure: Students were given 8 questions to answer about a disease of their choice.  The students researched the diseases online and answered the questions in a PowerPoint slide show.  The students helped each other with the slide shows and  presented their finding to the rest of the class.
