Antibiotic Awareness

This antibiotic lesson demonstrates to students that antibiotics are special medicines that only work on bacteria. Later, the test tube experiment will help students learn that antibiotics should only be taken if they have been prescribed by your doctor and you should take the whole course of antibiotics.

Students can read our fun facts on antibiotics and try to find their way through our maze, to help Amy reach her antibiotics.
