Lesson 2 - Clean Body[edit | edit source]
Materials[edit | edit source]
Toothpaste, Soap, Toothbrush
Tell the children that it is nice to be around people who are clean. Keeping your body, hands, face, and hair clean helps to keep away germs. Review with them that germs are tiny things we cannot see, but can make people sick. Germs get into our bodies and make us feel bad.
Discuss with the class some of the ways we take care of our bodies, such as washing our hands and face with soap and water, brushing our teeth, etc. Demonstrate how to properly wash hands and brush teeth using real materials (show the children toothpaste, a toothbrush, soap, etc.) if possible.
Activities[edit | edit source]
Sing the following verses while using the hand and body movements (adding your own if you wish) to the tune of "Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush":
This is the way we brush our teeth (simulate brushing teeth)
Brush our teeth, brush our teeth.
