III. Subject Matter/Content (prerequisite skills, key vocabulary, big idea, outline of
additional content)
A. Prerequisite skills:
1.) Fine and gross motor ability to perform hygiene skills.
2.) Ability to demonstrate imitation skills
B. Key Vocabulary:
1.) Bacteria- tiny germs that are made up of only one cell. That is really small!
We are made up of millions of cells
2.) Common diseases bacteria cause:
1. Strep Throat- infection of throat
2. Food poisoning- infection of the intestinal tract
3.) Viruses- one-celled germs, but are much smaller than bacteria

C. Big Idea
1.) How can practicing appropriate personal hygiene prevent germs?
D. Content
2.) Appropriate personal hygiene
IV. Implementation
A. Introduction:
1.) To introduce this lesson the teacher will present to the class a game, 2 truths
and a lie to encourage, motivate, and grab their interest.
2.) Once the game is completed, the teacher and students will then join in a
whole class discussion to discuss the game and their answer, and to
B. Development
1. Begin the lesson by presenting students with the PowerPoint on why it
is important to prevent germs& hand washing. (See attached)
2. The teacher should then ask what they already know about hand
washing, what the importance of hand washing is, and what they want to
know. Please ask them to fill out their responses on their KWL chart
provided. (See attached)
3. After the students have finished filling out their chart. Stop the
PowerPoint and start the activity that introduces why it is important for
students to wash their hands.
4. The teacher should use a spray bottled filled with clean water and spray
water on the childrens hands.
5. The teacher should then explain that the water on their hands represents
germs that come out of their mouths when they cough and sneeze.
6. The teacher should then have the children touch an object (i.e., table,
chair, etc.)
7. Once the students have completed this task ask them what happened to
the object they touched (it became damp). The teacher should then explain
to the students that this is what happens when we sneeze into our hands
and then touch an object (the germs on our hands get on the object).
8. The teacher should then discuss what might happen if one of their
friends touches the object while it is moist (they might pick up the germs
and get sick).
9. The teacher should explain to the students that if you wash your hands
after sneezing or coughing in them the germs will be washed away and
there will be less of a chance for people to get sick.
10. Once the activity is completed the teacher will then show the video Sid
the Science Kid Clean it Up to show the steps involved in the process of
hand washing.
11. Once the video is over, please allow the students to fill out the last
section of their chart. In the last section students should write down what

they learned about the steps involved in hand washing and why it is
important to wash your hands.
12. The teacher should then return back to the PowerPoint and review the
steps of proper hand washing with the students.
13. Finally, the teacher will then demonstrate how to lather by rubbing
palms together, rubbing the back of hands, between the fingers and
washing the thumb.
14. The teacher will then teach the student a song to a common tune
Row, Row, Row Your Boat while pretending that they are lathering by
rubbing their hands together.
15. Then the teacher will then instruct each table at a time to actually wash
their hands using the proper technique that was taught while singing the
16. The teacher will watch each student wash his or her hands using the
hand-washing checklist. (See attached)
B. Closure
1.) The students will work on an activity sheet where they will color and
then students will sign the bottom of the sheet where it states, I pledge to
wash my hands. (See attached)
3.) The teacher will then read Happy Healthy Monsters
4.) Once you have completed the book, discuss some of the points focused
in the book.
5. Allow the students to observe their potatoes and record their
observation. Tell the students that they should fill out day 2 on their
inquiry sheet. Also tell the students that tomorrow they will explore
healthy foods and tomorrow will complete our Germs Go Away Journey.
C. Accommodations/Differentiation
1. To accommodate for James, a child with autism, you would make sure that
he is comfortable being sprayed with the water before attempting the activity.
If James is uncomfortable, you could not spray him, and just have him watch
and engage with the other children.
D. Assessment/Evaluation Plan
Formative1.) The formative assessment will be the KWL Chart.
2.) The formative assessment will be the teacher watching as each student
wash their hands to formatively assess the comprehension of the students.
The teacher will assess based on the hand washing check list.
Summative1.) There is no summative assessment for this lesson.

V. Reflective Response
A. Report of Student Performance in Terms of Stated Objectives (Reflection on
student performance written after lesson is taught, includes remediation for
students who fail to meet acceptable level of achievement)
Remediation Plan
B. Personal Reflection (Questions written before lesson is taught. Reflective
answers to question recorded after lesson is taught)
Can students identify the appropriate personal hygiene to prevent germs?

Can students perform the appropriate personal hygiene correctly?
