Germs and Handwashing Lesson

Students explore how proper handwashing can prevent the spreading of germs. In this handwashing instructional activity, students use glitter and cooking spray to demonstrate how germs spread. Students will wash their hands correctly and incorrectly and compare the remaining germs on their hands. Students will then sing a song about proper handwashing and preventing germs from spreading.

I have been told by seasoned educators not to "re-invent the wheel" when coming up with ideas for lessons. So true!! Lesson Planet has a wealth of sources and ideas from some of the greatest teaching minds that are out there...what a blessing to have a resource such as Lesson Planet, to turn to. I am even planning to contribute a lesson or two myself. My daughter is in a teacher education program and I have introduced her to the "Planet". We're spreading the news!
