The third lesson in a Key stage 3 unit of work on the Welfare State, but could easily be adapted to Key Stage 4.
We start with a simple retrieval practice starter where the pupils have to put the events in order, you just adapt to suit your previous learning.
We then introduce the term antibiotic and what this means and why it might have been important in the war effort and elsewhere. We then look at the story of the discovery of penicillin. The pupils stick the outline road into their books at watch the information slides as the teacher scrolls through. They are fully illustrated with some amusing sound effects too. The pupils then watch a short video which discusses the science in more detail. We then look at an interpretation and the pupils complete a differentiated task answer the questions around the interpretation in 10mins. We then finish with a ‘to what extent do you agree’ type question where the pupils consider the significance of the discovery compared to other scientific discoveries.
I hope that this proves useful and saves you some time.
