In Preschool we talk about germs 🦠 🦠 🦠 constantly! Monday and Tuesday we spent extra time explaining how germs spread. On Monday We did a fun pepper (germs) and water activity by dipping a finger into water that had pepper in it- and all of the pepper (germs) stuck to their finger. When they put soap on their finger and stuck it back in the pepper water no “germs” stuck to their finger anymore. On Tuesday our clinical friend, Travis, taught us a lesson on germs with glitter and lotion. Each student had their own color of glitter put on their hands. After shaking hands or giving a high five to each friend- they now had ALL the colors of glitter on them. They were amazed and hopefully understand all this germ stuff that you can’t actually see! 🦠 🦠 🦠
