Explores the fascinating history in making a vaccine for smallpox, courtesy of Edward Jenner and James Phipps (and a milkmaid named Sarah Nelm). An optional timeline can spread this assignment over 2 days if necessary.
The "The Moo-ving History of Vaccines" that really captivates your budding scientists or historians! It takes us back to inoculations of long ago, and how devastating disease once could be. Students will gain an appreciation for the medical phenomena of today. Students also love finding out how "vaccinations" got their name! This activity very simply describes how vaccinations work without going into too much detail. This pairs nicely with Sub Plan I: Achoos, Allergies, and Ouches.
*Student Packet option included to save paper!
This sub plan is a useful tool to help encourage scientific literacy in reading, graphing, and making connections to the scientific world.
Feel good knowing that your students will be well taken care of on those days that you are out- don't scramble for another sub plan! You can use this year after year!
