In this lesson, from Access Excellence, students are introduced to the immune system. The primary focus of this inquiry-based lesson is antigen-antibody specificity. After focusing the students' attention on allergic reactions, two hands-on experiments allow students to explore the specific reaction between an antigen and the antibody that recognizes it.
