13What are Germs? Key Stage 1 Estimated teaching time 30 minutes Curricular areas Science (scientific enquiry),Art and Design (exploring and developing ideas).Objectives4. Explain that there are many types of germs and that different germs can make us ill , but some are good for us.Children will learn that there are many varietiesof germs, such as viruses and certain bacteria.Some are good but some can make us ill.5. Ask the children where do they think germs live. Write their answers on a board or flipchart.To create an understanding that germs are smaller thanthe eye can see.To create an understanding of where germs live.6. Go on to explain that germs are nearly everywhereSuggested Sequence7. Show children the images of germ types, discuss the shapes (balls, spirals, etc) and explain the illnesses they can cause.You could link this with an art competition.Ask if anyone knows what germs are?2. Ask how big they are?3. Inform children that germs are tiny bugs, also called micro-organisms and microbes. (Explain that we can’t see them with our eyes, we need the help of a microscope, which acts like a giant magnifying glass. If possible show the children a microscope or a magnifying glass.)
14Healthy Hands, Healthy School (part one) Key Stage 1 or 2Estimated teaching time 1 hour(total time for parts one and two).3. Begin a discussion about why it is important to have good hand hygiene . Encourage children to think beyond the obvious. For example, staying healthy means that children can stay in school, where they can learn, see their friends, play sports and so on.Curricular areas: PSHE (preparing to play an active part as citizens; developing a healthy, safer lifestyle), Science (scientific enquiry).ObjectivesChildren will learn the importance of good hand hygiene.4. Remind children that we can’t see germs, ask children to pretend that the pieces of glitter are germs.To demonstrate to children how germs can be spread by contact with other pupils.5. Over a bucket, put a small amount of glitter on the hands of a few children. Ask them to rub their hands together to spread the glitter easily.MaterialsGlitter, Paper Towels, Bucket, Soap, WaterSuggested sequence6. Then ask the children to shake hands with other children, who in turn shake hands with others. Repeat this process until all class members have shaken hands with at least five other children.1. Involve the children in a discussion about the importance of hand hygiene. Ask children why it is important to wash hands, when we need to wash our hands and what canhappen if we do not wash our hands.7. Discuss with the children how many of them have some of the "germs" on their hands? How did they get there?2. Write down the children’s responses on the board and generate discussion to fill in any obvious blanks.How might we be able to get rid of them?
15Healthy Hands, Healthy School (part two) Key Stage 1 or 2Estimated teaching time: 1 hour(total time for parts one and two).Group 3Ask this group to try to remove the glitter with warm water and soap.Curricular areas: PSHE (preparing to play an active part as citizens; developing a healthy, safer lifestyle), Science (scientific enquiry).Write down the children’s responses on the board to the following questions:Objective :To demonstrate the best method of washing handsin order to remove germs.3. Ask each group what happened when they tried to get the glitter off their hands. Did they get all the glitter off? Which group got the most off?Materials: Glitter, paper towels, bucket, soap, waterSuggested sequence4.

Get all the pupils to wash the remaining glitter off their hands using the correct technique. What did they do differently?Group 2Ask this group to try to remove the glitter using only plain water.
16Fun Facts (part one) Background information Micro-organisms cannot be seen by the naked eye (micromeans tiny and organism means a living creature); many hundreds of them would fit on the full stop at the end of this sentence. They are found everywhere, in soil, air, water, on our skin and in our tummies. Most of the time when they are in the right place the majority of micro-organisms are not harmful to people and often do a lot of good such as breaking down waste and making bread. We couldn’t live without them.Micro-organisms can be spread:By direct contact such as holding hands then getting into our body through cuts or breaks in the skin.Through the air when we sneeze, cough, talk or sing.Bacteria: are single cell organisms. The human body is home to millions of bacteria, most are friendly and are found almost everywhere on our body, but some can cause diseases such as tummy ache and feeling sick. They come in four general shapes of: rod, comma, round and spiral.By indirect contact as micro-organisms are present on toys,toilet handles, etc.Viruses: are the smallest type of germ that is known and can cause infections such as colds and flu, measles, and chickenpox. Viruses are even smaller than bacteria and need to live insideFungi: includes mushrooms, like the ones you eat, moulds and yeasts. Some are parasites and can live on you such as ringworm.cells to reproduce and spread infection.
17Fun Facts (part two) Typically there are between 10,000 and 10 million bacteria on each hand.Damp hands spread 1,000 times more germs than dry hands.The number of germs on our fingertips doubles afterwe use the toilet.Bacteria 40 million years old have been extracted and successfully grown from a fossilised bee.In 1918 more people died from the influenza virus (approximately 30 million) than died in the First WorldWar (10 million).Bacteria double their number every 20 minutes. Children can be asked to calculate how many there are after 1, 7 and 24 hours.When we cough germs can travel about 3 metres if we donot cover our nose and mouth with a handkerchief .Almost one million bacteria can be created by one person in a school day.Studies show only about 70% of people wash theirhands after using a public toilet.
