It's Cool: An Experiment and Modeling Lesson
Author(s): Alan Ticotsky, Rob Quaden, & D. Lyneis Subject: Science
  Prepared with the support of the Gordon Stanley Brown Fund. In this lesson, fifth grade students measure, record, and graph the changing temperature of a cooling cup of boiling water. Students then build a simple STELLA model of the system and run further experiments on the model. This lesson introduces students to the concept of feedback in a system dynamics model.

History and Biology of Smallpox: A General Introduction to the Epidemic Spread of Disease
Author(s): John Heinbokel, & Jeff Potash Subject: Cross-Curricular
  This series of case-studies developed by the Waters Center for System Dynamics examines the dynamics and impacts of such epidemics primarily through the lens of one specific disease --smallpox.

Complex Systems Connection: Separate Cause and Effect. For some illness/disease, symptoms appear long after initial infection. Sometimes people travel great distance while infected because they are unaware of the infection. Medical "detectives" faced with an epidemic must understand how the infection spreads and how quickly. Delays in the system make this more difficult.
