Show how easily germs are passed along


Bowl, glitter, hand wipes


Put glitter in a bowl, dip your hand into it. The shake the hand to the girl to the left of you (using your left hand, guiding tradition), and have that ladybird shake the hand of someone beside her. Goes in a circle and see how much flitter the girl at the end has on her. The glitter represents germs, see how much germs travel. That’s why it’s really important to wash your hands a lot.
