I created this worksheet and game to go along with my Infection Control standards. The main goal is to investigate the differences between pathogenic and non-pathogenic microbes.
The worksheet will ask students to identify the 4 major germs and then research common germs and their properties, including diseases they cause, pathogenic properties and modes of transmission.
The activity is a fun representation of how we exchange germs on a daily basis. Students will "share" their microbes with classmates and then the pathogenic germs are revealed. However, they may have escaped infection with proper preventative techniques.
