We have divided the film up into 3 classroom-period-friendly segments that can be watched separately and have a set of companion activities.

Part III: FDA Drug Development

Activities include lesson plans, discussion questions, workbook, lab activities, and career exploration activities. 

All activities have NGSS and/or AP Bio standards alignment.
