Product Description
Are you looking for hands-on investigations for students to learn about germs and how they travel? Look no farther! This mini-unit can be planned to take 1-2 weeks on its own, or it can also serve as a perfect supplement to your curriculum. This mini-unit is made up for 4 investigations, with students keeping record of the final investigation for 7 days after its completion.

Included in this mini-unit:
-Germs, Bacteria, and Virus Word Wall or Vocabulary Cards
-Teacher Lesson Guides
-Lesson Materials Lists
-Lesson 1: An introduction to germs, bacterias, and viruses through an iPad exploration.
-Lesson 2: How Do Germs Travel? Hands-on investigation.
-Lesson 3: Germs Are EVERYWHERE! A glitter investigation.
-Lesson 4: The "Germiest" Place in the School- Observing Bacteria Growth

I hope your students have a blast with this unit! Even if you don't have anything about germs in your curriculum, it may be a VERY beneficial mini-unit to sneak into some extra time- especially around flu season! My students were washing their hands like crazy after they learned from this unit!

If you would be so kind, please take a moment to rate this product so I can continue to improve it!

Happy teaching,
Kendra Breunig
