K-2 lesson on hand washing and germs

This week every class K – 2  had a refresher lesson in the Learning Commons about health. Something about story time draws little ones to touch their faces. In an effort to remind students about hygiene we talked about germs, nose picking and hand washing. This is particularly important on the days we use the iPads, although we all share the books, door knobs, railings and table tops. We also took a look at some images of germs under a microscope.



We read ‘Sick Simon’ by Dan Krall which helps children visualize the germs and encourages them to understand how sickness can spread. We also sang along with a catchy little tune in a video called ‘ Picking Your Nose is Nasty’.

Other titles in the Vanier Library collection include:

Felicity Floo Visits the Zoo by E.S. Redmond

Germs are not for Sharing by Elizabeth Verdick

Sid the Science Kid: The Trouble with Germs

Keeping Clean by Honor Head
