Help you students understand that evolution happens all the time, all around them, and affects their lives! In this activity students will think about antibiotics, how often they are prescribed, and how often people finish all of their antibiotics. After a discussion, students will watch a PBS Evolution video about antibiotic resistant TB (http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/evolution/library/11/2/e_s_6.html) and then answer questions relating antibiotic resistance to evolution of bacteria.
Includes Before and After Video question.
