Primary - Vaccinations: Teacher Sheets

Whilst antibiotics and other medicines can help us treat infections, vaccines are used to help prevent the infection from causing us harm.

In this lesson, students learn the story of Edward Jenner and his amazing discovery of the first vaccine to explain how exposure to relatively harmless microbes can protect us from deadly ones. The ‘fill in the blanks&’ and &’;answer questions’ activities help reinforce the main points of the story.

The extension activity encourages students to recreate the story of Edward Jenner and his vaccine discovery through a fun play.
