Ebola is a deadly virus that has reappeared in Western Africa in an outbreak that began in February of this year. We've supplied you with weekly statistics on the progression of this disease and given you and your students a few questions to assess.
Consider beginning this task by finding out what students already know about Ebola and viewing the slide show from HealthMap.org/ebola/.
Of course with our data and Excel chart you could create your own investigation. Perhaps share what you've investigated in the comments section of this post.
