Resources

 red, green and blue labels
 red, green and blue sticky dots (the same colour labels as dots

Instructions

Introduction
This activity will teach your Brownies how the spread of disease and infection can be stopped

Instructions
Germ Free

Choose 3 Brownies to be germs.
Identify them with different coloured stickers e.g. measles = red label; whooping cough=blue label; polio= green label
Brownies in their Sixes
Give the Sixers a selection of dots and tell them in "immunise" the Brownies against two of the three diseases. The Sixers give out 2 different coloured sticky dots to each Brownie. The dots are to be kept in the closed palm of a hand.
The germs chase the Brownies.
When a germ catches a Brownie, the Brownie shows her hand. If she has the right colour she is free. If she does not have the right colour she is "dead" e.g. if a measles germ (red label) catches a Brownies who is immunised against measles i.e. she has a red sticky dot, she is free to go. If she has no immunisation then she dies!
