Produced by the Health Protection Agency, this e-Bug resource helps students to understand the process of vaccination and how it uses the body's immune system to help protect from harmful infections.
Teacher guidance, stimulus materials and students' activity sheets are included.
The materials include a students' reading comprehension activity in which they are told a story about Edward Jenner and how he discovered vaccines. This story can either be given as individual handouts or be read as a class.
Fill in the blanks and Answer questions activities help reinforce the main points of the story. An extension activity encourages students to recreate the story of Edward Jenner and his vaccine discovery through role play.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
