This section aims to teach students how poor respiratory hygiene can lead to the spread of microbes and disease. Students observe how far microbes are carried when they sneeze and how many people can be affected. This lesson perfectly complements the RSHE Health and Prevention guidelines.
Through a set of trial experiments, students learn that covering your mouth and nose with a tissue or sleeve (not hands) when coughing, or sneezing helps prevent the spread of infection.
