I am starting my year off with this unit. Any ideas?!? I have a few ideas, but I'd love to make some sort of bulletin board or something. I'd love art ideas..whatever. Please share your ideas.

There was a PT post earlier this summer:

Also, here are some other internet links:

I've done the activity listed in the first link where you use glitter to represent germs. Kids love this activity!

Plush microbes

I have a couple "germs" that are plush. They have been expanded 1 million times so kids can see the general shape. Little eyes have been added to make them cute. I have The Flu and Sore Throat. They're only $7.99 each on this website: http://www.thinkgeek.com/geektoys/plush/6708/ -- my kids love them.

Good luck!

A few simple ideas I used

You didn't say what grade level you teach, but with younger children, I had each child draw his/her face on a paper plate-added hair, glasses, etc., then had hand cutouts with a tissue crumbled up a bit to make it look like it was covering a sneeze over the mouth/nose area. Title was: "Cover your sneeze please!" I also did the germ spreading using cornstarch powder (messy, but easier to clean than glitter) I squeezed the box of powder to show a sneeze without covering mouth (Let it spray out), then covered the sneeze and "caught" the sneeze with my hand. I then proceeded to shake hands with each child, or tough their face or shirt-leaving "powder germs". Oh, then I "Sneezed with powder into my hand and washed my hands and touched them leaving no germs behind. It was a great visual that they remembered.
