This section focuses on the spread of infection, teaching students how coughs and sneezes can spread microbes over large areas, and how this can result in the spread of infection. This lesson perfectly complements the Health and Prevention element of the new RSHE curriculum for primary aged children.
In this section students observe on a large scale how far germs are carried when they sneeze, and learn that covering your mouth with a tissue, or your sleeve (not your hand) can prevent the spread of infection.
