Sickle Cell Anaemia and Malaria

In the last class of Biology our teacher asked us to do this activity of 3 ideas, 2 questions, and 1 metaphor. I worked with Emilia Varela.


3 ideas:

  • sickle cell anemia prevents malaria since mosquitoes don’t attack those faulty red blood cells.
  • Sickle cell is normal in places where malaria is normal as well.
  • Sickle cells have a different shape than regular red blood cells.


2 questions:

  • Is sickle cell anaemia worse than malaria?
  • Can the red blood cells prevent sickle cell anaemia?


1 metaphor:

  • Having sickle cell anaemia in Africa is a life saver.
