Students use today’s headlines and research ways to create a healthier school. In this mini-project, students examine these four areas of their own school: a) Close contacts (social distancing), b) Surface area contamination c) Personal hygiene opportunities and d) Attendance policies
First, they create a model of what their typical day is like – the frequency of close contacts. Now, they make recommendations for reducing unnecessary close contacts. Next, they consider all the surfaces they touch and make recommendations. For example, are calculators and electronic devices shared? Are lunchroom tables disinfected after each lunch period? Personal hygiene opportunities throughout the day? Lastly, do the school’s attendance policies encourage well students to come every day…but support the sick ones remaining home?
This lesson can be edited as you see fit. I have them creating a slide show – your call on that.
