Superbugs: Join the fight
Imagine a world where antibiotics no longer work… “Superbugs are a strain of bacteria that have become resistant to antibiotic drugs, and the issue of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has recently featured in the media”1, giving you an ideal opportunity to engage students in a topical issue with real-world impact.
Superbugs: Join the fight is a PSHE/science teaching resource and competition (coming soon) exploring the issue of AMR and showing that simple steps like hand-washing and personal hygiene can help prevent infection.
- Teacher Guide containing an overview of the Superbugs issue, resource summary and curriculum links
- Lesson Plan – memorable PSHE/Health and wellbeing/PSE/PDMU lesson with activities exploring the Superbugs issue and what students can do about it
- Activity Sheets exploring personal hygiene
- Presentation & Video bringing the Superbugs issue to life (for an assembly or to kick off activities in the classroom)
- Competition Leaflet providing instructions and tips for students, as they are challenged to come up with their own creative ideas to let people know about the issue
- Parent Leaflet – key messages and tips for parents around preventing infection and stopping the spread of Superbugs
- Poster to display in school, raising awareness of the issue and the importance of personal hygiene
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
