Three-Dimensional Science Lesson Plan

Lesson/Unit Title: Antibiotic Resistance Created by: Diana Miculescu

Lesson to Redesign or Plan:

Investigate the relationship between bacteria, antibiotics, and antibiotic resistance

through research and how antibiotic resistance affects human health.

Core Ideas:

SB6e. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to assess the theory of evolution.
e. Develop a model to explain the role of natural selection plays in causing biological resistance (antibiotic

Authentic Scenario: Antibacterial ingredient, triclosan, has been banned by the FDA from soaps, but it has not
been banned from toothpaste, (yet?).

Watch video: Antibacterial ingredients of toothpaste might be helpful, Colgate says:

Guiding Question: Why is triclosan banned from soaps but not from toothpaste (yet)?

Is triclosan harmful or beneficial in soaps and/or toothpaste?

Should triclosan be banned from toothpaste? Why or why not?
How can daily use of triclosan increase antibiotic resistance in bacterial populations?

Science & Engineering Practices: Crosscutting Concepts:

Engaging in Argument from Evidence Cause & Effect

Stability and Change

using research as evidence to support their claim.
Provide readings for background information about
cause & effect and stability and change.

Integration: Using news, science articles, and online resources, students will obtain, evaluate, and communicate
the scientific information regarding the impact of using antibiotics in daily use items and the effects it might have
on human health as well as antibiotic resistance in bacteria.
