    A useful basic powerpoint explaining the nature of cholera and the role and actions of Dr. John Snow in pinpointing the 1854 Soho outbreak to the Broad Street water pump. I work as a supply teacher and it was a valuable enhancement to the resources I was left. I used it with a Y5 class and with a little explanation as to some of the language used it worked fine.

    Simple outline of the Cholera outbreak and how the map Dr Snow made helped track the culprit (a contaminated pipe! Information only.

    Worked well for us. It's a real pleasure to be a part of the community of this wonderful site. I truly recommend other teachers to use it. It includes so much information that I was almost blown away with it, which is quite something if you know me as the teacher I am. Thanks so much to the absolutely spiffing creator of this super site. I truly hope that there will be more to come of this brilliant knowledge. Thanks again! tata
