1st and 2nd grade--Germs Popplet

In the hopes of decreasing the spread of germs and increasing the covering of mouths and noses with elbows, we spent a couple days learning about bacteria and viruses. I brought out electron microscope photos from my days as a molecular biology and read aloud books including The Magic School Bus: Inside Ralphie, No Measles No Mumps For Me, and Germs Make Me Sick. After some hands-on activities (glitter passes around on hands, making a chain of picking up germs around the room, and "sneezing" confetti) students created a Popplet showing what they learned.
