Understanding that the conditions for mosquitoes to survive are only getting better, it made more sense to figure out more about the mosquito, and heartworm disease itself! With some resources provided by students, we are putting more and more pieces together!
We even watched this video to confirm our understanding of how heartworm spreads.
Our next steps: Figuring out how we can help stop the spread, regardless of whether we have a dog or not!
This sick dog unit will culminate the end of the year. Please know that due to the sensitivity with COVID-19 at this time, we launched our unit with a discussion regarding the importance of scientific process when it comes to understanding illness transmission, treatment, and prevention. Stay well, everyone.
