Meet the GERM Lady! She did a WONDERFUL presentation on washing your hands. She showed the kids how to properly wash hands and had a great jingle to go along with it. Afterward, she had the students put green lotion on their hands to represent germs and then wash their hands. They looked under a special light for any remains of "germs". It was a wonderful activity and the kids all enjoyed it. She shared her bag of germs with us...one was E-Coli; one was Strep; one was the regular flu; one was the Swine Flu; and sore throat! Kids colored on a hand they traced where they saw the green "germs" under the light and added details of the stuffed animal germs.

Meet the GERMS! common cold, regular flu, sore throat (strep), swine flu, and (creepy looking) e-coli!

Taylor, Tanner H., and Wyatt try to figure out how to make a triangle shape with their bodies. Justin K. tries to give suggestions.
Yay! They figured it out!
Dakota and Paul worked hard to make a circle.
Lily, Ethan, Alan, and I believe a hidden AJ make a square.
It took a while for students to figure out that to make a rectangle, there needed to be an extra person on two sides, but they got it!
Another view of the rectangle.
We also worked in small groups with yarn to make shapes. We TRIED to make a circle, but with no corners on a circle, it was impossible to do!
