Influential Black Biologists - Teachers' lesson Plan

The SEB “Influential Black Biologists” lesson plan for schools

This is the teachers plan, you will also need the worksheet for children which can be found here.

The lesson plan outlines a series of activities that teachers can use and educate children on the influences that the Black community have had on biology. Activities include researching inspirational Black biologists from a suggested list and writing a news piece about them, twitter profiles and creating top trump cards. It also provides resources to aid in discussions about diversity and inclusion as well as career resources.

Our aim is to encourage pupils to learn about influential Black biologists who advanced their field and added to scientific knowledge, to help them understand the importance of diversity in science and to provide inspiration for future biologists.

We encourage teachers and educators to use this pack in creating lesson plans for their pupils and to share it widely.
