Health Presentation: Nurse Lovell

  • Viruses can’t be treated with medicine
  • Bacteria like strep throat or pneumonia can be treated with antibiotics
  • Deadly viruses like measles: vaccines protect us

3 ways germs spread:

  • Air
    • When a person sneezes and doesn’t cover, it goes the length of three elephants through the air
    • Cover with arm not hand
    • Sickness that spread through the air: common cold or flu
  • Touch
    • T-zone (eyes, nose, and mouth)
    • Try not to touch T-zone to stay healthy
    • Wash hands well
    • Experiment with lotion and blacklight to simulate germs and washing hands
    • How to wash your hands: get hands wet, get soap and stay out of the water, rub (soap helps germs slip off), wash hands for 20 seconds (ABC’s two times), spider fingers, bear claws (get under fingernails)
    • Washing hands prevents illnesses
  • Body Fluids
    • Blood (wear gloves, don’t touch other people’s blood)

Overall lesson: Wash hands well and don’t touch the T-zone

Next meeting: April 10, 2019
