Transport your pupils back to a time when smallpox stalked the world and introduce them to Dr Jenner, James Phipps, and the experiment that has probably saved their lives.
In this innovative set of resources pupils learn about Dr Edward Jenner's pioneering work with smallpox vaccination using a variety of cross curricular approaches including data analysis, exploring primary and secondary history sources, art, creative writing and film-making.
There are four core activities and five enrichment activities for children aged from 9 to11. The activities are designed to develop pupils' skills in 'working scientifically', maths, English history and ethics. They are fully linked to Learning Outcomes drawn from the relevant National Curriculum documents.
These resources have been developed and produced by the Association for Science Education in partnership with James Films, with support from the Wellcome Trust.
