Superbugs encore conversation starters
- Hand washing is the best thing you can do to fight off the superbugs – but it can be pretty boring without some entertainment. Work as a songwriting team with a family member to make a 20 second song to sing every time you scrub (or to remind each other to wash up)!
- Penicillin was the first antibiotic but it was invented by accident. Have you made any accidental discoveries that have helped you solve a problem?
- There’s a microscopic war going on in the dirt! Imagine shrinking down to the size of bacteria and jumping in the soil. Draw a picture or a comic strip of the good guys (penicillin mold) and the bad guys (staphylococcus, E. Coli, Salmonella) fighting it out. Who will win?
