Wow! This lesson is stinkin' awesome! (I mean that in a good way.) Every bit as engaging as the "black light powder" method but closer to universally accessible for those of us who do not live in large metro areas. (yay Walmart!) No doubt during the handshaking portion of the lesson, someone will touch their own face close to the T-zone and illustrate just how easy it is to help the sick germs attack you.
I am so glad you liked this lesson. My students have always responded well to this lesson. You are right about the touching the face. Glitter tends to get everywhere. Even later in the day kids will find glitter somewhere!
