Practicing good personal hygiene is important for helping keep the body healthy and clean. As an educator, you are aware that some of your students probably require detailed instructions on what good personal hygiene actually means.
Often, educators may find themselves trying to explain why brushing one’s teeth or washing one’s hands is important. With our country in the midst of trying to combat the coronavirus, there has never been a better time to teach and reinforce with your students that they need to take steps to keep themselves clean.
According to the CDC, handwashing with soap removes germs from hands. This helps prevent infections because individuals frequently touch their eyes, nose, and mouth without even realizing it. Germs can get into the body through the eyes, nose, and mouth and make us sick. That’s why we did a video lesson plan that specifically focuses on proper hygiene. You can watch it here.
With our Healthy Relationships Curriculum, you will receive detailed lesson plans including more than 85 videos, and your students will be provided with visual demonstrations so they can approach hygiene and other issues from a practical standpoint.
