Activity 2A: Type 1 and Type 2 Table

Teacher should give each student a copy of the table of Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. The class should read and discuss the table, so that the students review how to read a table, and gain an understanding of the differences between Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes.
 
The students will use the table to create a Venn diagram, comparing and contrasting various aspects of Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. 
 
The students will diagram: 
  • Age of onset
  • Symptoms
  • Complications
  • Treatment 
To further gain an understanding of the nature of the disease, the students will answer a few debriefing questions following the Venn diagram.
