This resource begins with a useful visual to introduce the topic of mutations and initiate discussion on point mutations. Students are then invited to watch two videos (links provided) before researching and answering a series of questions about mutations. I usually allow 20 minutes for the students to answer the questions on the worksheet, before going through the answers as a class (using the PowerPoint slides). If there is time, I then explain how mutations in bacteria enable them to become resistant to antibiotics.
