  1. Kate, this lesson was really cute and so prevalent in the classrooms during a pandemic. This lesson also reminded me of the one you taught on zoom last semester with germs and glitter. Awesome lesson!

  2. Kate, I really enjoyed your post this week! I love how you used the pictures to show what is needed to wash your hands rather than just listing them. The comparing picture in the beginning is a super engaging piece to put right in the beginning. Great job!

  3. Hello Kate!

    I love this lesson idea! Such an important concept to remember especially at an elementary age. Not only that but the images were nicely displayed and consistent with what part of the lesson came next. I wanted to highlight your use of the slider option, what a clever way to show clean versus dirty hands.

  4. Kate,
    A good primer. Makes effective use of images to move the narrative.
    Don’t forget to add a featured image.

  5. Hi Kate, I really liked your lesson!! I’m kind of a germaphobe, so as a teacher I will definitely be ensuring students learn about personal hygiene as much as possible. And the timing is quite fitting as everyone has been constantly reminded about frequent and proper handwashing these days.
