It seems like this is the time of year when everyone gets sick! Kids are sneezing on tables, coughing in their hands and then using the community crayon box, and germs are just running crazy in the art room! Something had to be done! So, I created this lesson: Kindergarten Germs. To begin, I read part of the book "Germs Make Me Sick" by Melvin Berger. Students discussed their ideas on ways we could keep our bodies healthy and stop the spread of bad germs. Afterwards, they used crayons and colored construction paper to create their own germ bug! Students learned about organic shapes, line variety and showing emotion in their artwork. Take a look at the germs below!
