Mrs. Montgomery, Cover your Sneeze!

We are talking about ways to stay healthy this week.  To help the children understand how germs spread, Mrs. Montgomery sneezed into her hand and spread germs (glitter).  She touched one child and that child touched another.  We went around the group touching the hand of the person next to us.  We then looked at our hands to see how far her germs spread.  Eight (of the eleven present) had germs from that one sneeze.  We also noticed that germs fell on the carpet so all of us would probably be sick eventually.  We learned to sneeze into the crook of our elbows and how important it is to wash hands.

Mrs. Montgomery had more germs in the afternoon.  Everyone ended up with the germs that were passed on.
