This file contains a mini-lesson on the discovery of Penicillin. My goal is to help students (5th - 8th graders) understand the importance and effects this medical miracle had on the world. It is one I think is very interesting.
It is also a good reference and a beginning outline of informational text for a history or science fair project. I know a student who won the History Fair for the school and county with her project on Penicillin. I have included a crossword puzzle activity, a word search, and bread mold activity with an observation chart, all relating to the topic of Penicillin.
