Germs Are Not for Sharing by Elizabeth Verdick. Great for health procedures such as washing hands, wiping the nose, coughing or sneezing. Plus, kissing with the hand versus the mouth! GREAT teaching tool and friendly reminder to children!
First graders just read a book in Art class called Germs Make Me Sick by Melvin Berger. Together, we thought of many ways we can all stay healthy. Students made a fold painting for the body of their germ and added cut paper body parts!
In an effort to stay healthy and prevent germs from spreading in our home, I decided to teach my children about germs and the importance of washing their hands through some fun activities. Before starting this activity, we read several books about germs.
