Superbugs: Join the Fight 2019/2020
Back again for a second year, the Superbugs: Join the Fight initiative continues to provide teachers with essential, curriculum-linked resources to educate pupils about the important real-world topic of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and the part they can play in preventing it.
In addition to last year’s fantastic Superbugs resources for 7-14 year-olds, this year we bring you:
- BRAND NEW Vaccines Lesson Pack for ages 11-14 to help educate your class about the importance of vaccinations and the role they play in the fight against superbugs – for example, how 19 out of every 20 people need to be vaccinated against measles to protect people who are not vaccinated1
- BRAND NEW nationwide competition for 5-14 year olds
- BRAND NEW World Antibiotics Awareness Week Assembly (18-24 November 2019), with everything you need to host a fun and educational assembly to support the lessons
- New Superbugs resources for ages 5-7 (previously only for 11-14 year-olds)
Don’t forget to enter the brand-new competition, where students can use creativity and language to tell the world about these important issues and be in with the chance of winning fantastic prizes!
Help your students to:
- KNOW more about AMR and its impact
- FEEL part of the solution and empowered to act
- DO take antibiotics responsibly and help stop the spread of infection/resistance
