Our Germs lesson plan introduces young students to basic information about germs, how they spread, and how to best prevent contact with germs. During this lesson, students are asked to use their creativity to create a poster encouraging people to wash their hands, including information about why it’s so important to do so. Students are also asked to read statements and tell which germ (Bacteria, Virus, Fungi, or Protozoa) the statement matches.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to name types of germs that cause illness and disease; identify common illnesses and diseases and their symptoms; and explain common practices that control the way germs are spread; explain ways in which germs are transmitted, methods of preventing the spread of germs, and the importance of immunization.
