An ideal lesson for Science Week (10th -19th March 2017).
The lesson focuses on exploring the famous work of Edward Jenner in helping to develop a vaccine for smallpox. It also provides opportunity to discuss how science has helped us in the fight against serious diseases.
Full differentiation is built into the independent task, with challenge activities and support sheets for those who need them.
The flexibility of the lesson means that I have been able to use it in Grades 2 to 5, but it could also be easily adapted for younger children.
*Teacher PowerPoint presentation
*2 differentiated activity sheets
*Full planning, linked to science curriculum
Please note: some video links are included in the sessions, which should always be assessed for suitability prior to use!
