GERMS 2017

Cold season's upon us.  Stop the spread of germs by teaching health etiquette.  It can be fun, seriously!  

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.  

Stories:  

  • 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!
