Paper Modeling Activity 4: Build Antibodies and Antiviral Drugs

Our bodies can produce antibodies able to identify and defend against coronavirus infections, and small molecule antiviral drugs that can interupt the virus replication process.

Our paper activity provided below can be printed and cut into 3-dimensional physical representations of antibodies and antiviral drugs. You can also draw your own.

Color Antibodies and Antiviral Drug Models PDF

Black and White Antibodies and Antiviral Drug Models PDF (Use colored pencils to color your models if you wish.)

Antibodies and Antiviral Drug Models Instructional Video

Antibodies and Antiviral Drug Models Drawing Guide PDF (Use this guide to draw your own antibodies and antiviral drugs. You will need paper, pencil and a ruler.)

We'd love to see your models! Send a photo or video to contactus@3dmoleculardesigns or tag us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
