Mrs. Lynn (Our school nurse) got a jump on cold and flu season by visiting our class to teach us about germs, hand washing, and ways to avoid spreading germs!
We learned that germs are so tiny we cannot see them without a microscope. Some germs help us and some germs make us sick. We try to keep germs to ourself by coughing or sneezing in our elbow and washing our hands. We learned how to wash our hands and when to wash our hands.
We did a science experiment with some pretend germs that show up under a black light. The kids did their best hand washing to see if they were able to get the pretend germs off. We learned that washing our hands well will help wash away the real germs, even if we can’t see them.
