Germs are everywhere, and you cannot see them. They can make you sick and they can make you feel better. When my class first found out that their bodies were covered with microorganisms they were amazed, they couldn’t stop thinking about it. Through the diagrams and the simple text, this book is excellent for introducing young readers and young listeners to viruses and bacteria; where they can live, what they do to humans, how our bodies fight them off, and much more.
This book provides an excellent list of rules for good health, make additions to this with your class and display in the classroom.
Visit this website for many images of various viruses. Some of the images take a while to load, but it’s worth it. Kids will love it.:
