First-graders learned that tiny, undetectable germs can get into their bodies through the eyes, nose and mouth and make them sick. They were also taught that washing hands prevents illnesses and the spread of infections to others. To culminate their unit on germs, they practiced proper handwashing with soap techniques. They worked on lathering up the soap to make “bubble gloves” to fight off germs during this cold and flu season.
