GoldAll About Germs (years 1 and 2)

This resource will help children understand what ‘germs’ are (that they are not all bad), will help them understand how viruses spread and how we can limit that spread, help them understand how medicines (including vaccinations) can protect us from illness, and help them understand how we can help keep bodies and minds healthy.

The PDF file provides notes for the teachers. It contains keywords, an index for the accompanying PowerPoint presentation and a practical experiment to demonstrate how a virus might spread.

The editable PowerPoint classroom presentation displays the lesson content (select the orange button to download). Please use ‘Slide Show’ mode to activate animations.
