The Hand Washing Lesson
My K-2 students absolutely loved this. The lesson uses lotion-covered hands and glitter to illustrate how germs spread. I placed glitter on one student’s hand and had the student shake hands, high five, and share a pencil with other students, and watching their reactions when they then had glitter (germs) on their hands was great! They then took turns washing their hands, learning just how much effort you should always put into washing your hands to get all of the germs off.

This is excellent!

I did this in my first grade class and have never seen them pay such rapt attention to anything since.  They they squealed about germs jokingly whenever they saw any glitter remnants on pencils (that stuff sticks pretty tenaciously!) and were very, very adamant about washing their hands.

Highly recommended.  Just be prepared to find specks of glitter everywhere for eternity.
