Essential learning before any trip to the farm! Students will learn that farm animals sometimes carry microbes that can be harmful to humans, with examples such as E. coli, Salmonella and Campylobacter. This lesson perfectly complements the Health and Prevention element of the new RSHE curriculum for KS2.
The Farm Hygiene lesson teaches students that the farm environment is home to both useful and harmful microbes. Students learn through group discussion, ‘social networking’, and a farm journey board game, the risks and benefits of various farm microbes.
