This week in Ruby Class, the children got to learn about the importance of antibiotics and the man behind the invention of antibiotics; Alexander Fleming.
Many of the children were very surprised to find out that a long time ago, a simple cut could have been fatal to some people. The children were given pictures of different items such as a Nobel Science Prize, tablets, bacteria and a picture of Sir Alexander Fleming. They had to guess what they all had in common. They then got to learn more about Alexander Fleming and the role that Antibiotics plays in our world.
We also discussed the concept of antibiotic resistance and the importance of only taking medicine when our doctor tells us to.
Ruby Class, what useful information did you learn in this lesson?
