Layered look book
Layered Look Book

~ Step One: Use four plain white pieces of paper. Line them up with each sheet 1 inch lower than the next sheet.

~ Step Two: Turn the sheets around near your tummy. Then fold the top of the sheets down leaving the 1 inch margin between all layers.

~ Step Three: When all the layers are even, crease the top and staple across the crease.

Layer 1 what is a virus
Layer # 1:What is a Virus?

~ A small, nonliving particle that invades and then reproduces inside a living cell.

~ Biologists consider viruses to be nonliving because viruses are not cells. Do not meet all characteristics of living organism.

Journal time september 4 2013

~ Only living characteristic is their ability to multiple.

~ This process is special because it requires a host cell.

~ A host is a living thing that provides a source of energy for a virus or an organism.

~ Organisms that live on/in a host causing harm are parasites.

~Viruses are like parasite because they destroy their host cell to multiply.

Journal time september 4 2013

~ No organisms are safe from viruses.

~ Viruses are special in the specific cells they infect.

Cold viruses typically infect cells of the nose and throat.

Layer 2 naming viruses
Layer #2Naming Viruses

  • Since viruses are nonliving, normal names are not assigned.

  • They are named after the disease they cause, founder or the organism they infect.

  • The Ebola Virus was named after the location in Africa where it was discovered.

Layer 3 shapes and sizes of viruses
Layer #3Shapes and Sizes of Viruses

Rod Shaped: linear

Spherical Shaped: actually 20 sided polygons.

  • These are the smaller virus types.

  • Smaller in animals and plants.

  • Virtually undetectable under even the most powerful of microscopes.

  • 20 – 250 nanometers

  • Average 50 – 60 nanometers


  • With its six legs, the bacteriophage attaches to the surface of the much larger bacteria

  • Once attached, the bacteriophage injects DNA into the bacterium. The DNA instructs the bacterium to produce masses of new viruses.

Layer 4 structure of viruses
Layer #4Structure of Viruses

All viruses have two basic parts: an outer coat that protects the virus and an inner core made of genetic material.

Journal time september 4 2013

  • Outer coat made of certain proteins that allow it to fit into certain host cells.

  • Because this is so specific a virus will only attach to one or a few types of cells.

  • Example: HIV can only attach to one kind of human white blood cell.
