This program serves as an outstanding health primer that clearly explains the most important facts children should know about germs and disease. Through live action and colorful animation, the program shows what bacteria and viruses are, and how they enter the body. The video explains that not all germs are harmful, but those that are can cause various illnesses. Students learn about common childhood diseases viruses produce, and why vaccinations can play an important role in prevention. Other ways to prevent illnesses are also covered, including washing and placing an antiseptic medicine in cuts and scrapes; bathing or showering daily; brushing teeth and washing hands properly; refraining from using another’s eating utensils; and staying away from classmates who sneeze and cough.
