Sabrina Dugan 4.8.2012 EEC 4731 Module 7 Health, Safety and Nutrition Lesson PlanLesson Steps/Procedure: 1. Before kids come to class in the morning, the teacher will apply some glitter to her hands and shake every student’s hands as they enter. 2. After kids have settled down, the teacher will read to them “Germs Are Not For Sharing,” and ask the students to check their hands for any glitter. 3. Ask the students to shake hands with their partners and check their hands again. 4. Tell the students that glitter represents germs. 5. Have a discussion about how the glitter was spread and how it could be removed by hand washing. 6. After the teacher displays proper hand washing techniques by showing the kids a video on the internet, the students will then form three groups.1st group will be called the “Paper towel” group.2nd group will be called the “Lotion” group.3rd group will be called the “Warm water and soap” group. 7. The 1st group will be asked to wipe off the glitter using paper towels. 8. The 2nd group will be asked to apply lotion (or petroleum jelly for those who are allergic) to their hands and then use paper towels. 9. The 3rd group will be asked to use the sink and rinse their hands and count till 20 out loud, while washing their hands with warm water using soap. 10. Ask all the groups to raise their hands and check what group has the cleanest hands. 11. Read “Wash Your Hands” and talk about disease prevention. 12. The students will then answer questions on the worksheets that will require students to use their prior knowledge and write down different scenarios that would involve hand washing. 13. Tell students that after they “HUG, HANDSHAKE, OR HIGHFIVE” anyone, they should wash their hands right after to prevent germs from spreading.Adaptations (special needs, ESOL, etc.):-For special needs kids, the stories will be read out loud using hand gestures and pictures torepresent symbols and objects in the story.-For ESOL kids, the video will be playing while the teacher holds up Spanish vocabulary indexcards to represent the vocabulary used in the video.-Petroleum jelly will be provided for the kids that are allergic to lotion.Higher Order Thinking Questions:-Can you imagine what would happen if we did not wash our hands for two whole days?(Discussion leading to different diseases.)-Can you think of any songs or rhymes we could sing while washing our hands?-Is soap needed to get all the germs to be washed away?
