Pre-schoolers learn about germs

STE. GENEVIEVE -- Ste. Genevieve Preschool students participated in a hand washing activity led by Mary Roth of the Ste. Genevieve County Health Department.

Roth discussed germs, how they are spread and the importance of washing hands to prevent the spread of germs.

Students listened to a story, passed a bear with pretend germs around then practiced washing hands appropriately.

Roth used a black light to show the children how well they washed their hands.

Areas not washed well glowed under the black light.
