This resource includes ten new, easily accessible activities that can be run in the classroom (or at home). 'Choose Your Own Pathology Adventure' has been developed with the current COVID-19 pandemic in mind – it offers a range of simple activities for 8 to 14 year olds that use everyday materials like paper clips, card, cocktail sticks and beads. 


Follow the flowchart based on whatever materials you have available and then find the corresponding activity in this pack. Each activity is linked to a pathology specialty and is suitable for individuals or small student groups. Ideally, these should be run alongside an online video chat or a demonstration by a pathologist.
