Discussion What is the link between these films? Answer – microbes and bacteria
Learning Objectives To understand more about microbes To recognise how microbes can be spread To recognise the link between good hygiene and health To understand how hand washing can stop the spread of germs and disease To learn the correct way to wash hands
Discussion What have you done this morning? Pictures here of: Toilet door Money Spotty face Breakfast bowl Shoes / pile of laundry Someone sneezing
Finger Facts The number of germs on your finger tips double after using the toilet. Around 17% of women and 31% of men admit they don’t wash their hands regularly after using the toilet. Germs from raw food can cause sickness, diarrhoea and fever. An American study found that when tested only 6% of bank notes were germ-free. The rest carried bugs including those that can cause pneumonia. There can be about a gram of poo in a pair of dirty pants! Bacteria are too small to be seen without a microscope. Most are about 1/1000 th of a millimetre, which is very tiny! A typical bacteria can divide every 20 minutes. Bacteria from a sneeze can be passed from person to person in the air, by touch or by surface contact.
Germs When were you last unwell? How did you feel? How do you think you became unwell?
Bacteria and Virus Bacteria A bacteria is a simple microbe made of just one cell. Many bacteria have a long spinning tail that helps them move. Bacteria can cause illnesses such as sore throats, whooping cough and food poisoning. Virus Viruses are the smallest of all microbes. Viruses need a living host cell to allow them to reproduce and survive. Viruses can cause illnesses such as chickenpox, cold sores and the flu.
