Here's this week's lesson, tailor-made to keep teachers and students healthy until the weather warms up and we can all get outside. The highlight of the lesson were the hands-on activities.
We paired a nonfiction book or online resource with our stories so kids could see the science behind how germs spread, too.
- Henry and Mudge and the Cold Shivers by Cynthia Rylant
- Ba-Choo! by Sarah Weeks (participatory, an annual favorite!)
- Mercer Mayer's Ah-Choo is a good one for small groups. It's a tiny book!
