Part 1 of 8- Guess the germ, virus or bacteria!

Play the game of “Who Am I?” to help the group recognize common communicable diseases all around us! “Who Am I?” can be played in a group or individually. For group play, the instructor reads through the clues aloud with the group and has them guess the common disease that is being referenced. Sheets with the descriptions minus the answer can also be used for group play.  You can follow up the group game with a Glo Germ Kit lesson to reinforce germ knowledge.  

For individual play, “Who Am I” cards or sheets should be printed out for the group to guess on their own. If “Who Am I?” cards or sheets are given out to the individuals, the instructor should follow up with a discussion and the correct answers. Prizes may be given out to the person(s) that gets the most correct (whether the game is played in a group or individually). 

Testing the students or employees individually or testing on germ characteristics as a group is also effective.  Just learn how to outfox infection!

“Who Am I?” is a great game to go along with a larger health program. If other communicable diseases are not listed that you think are important to know, please write us and we will include them in our next edition.

Who Am I? #1 Guess the germ based on the descriptions.  

(Answer at the bottom)

About Me:

I am a common skin infection caused by streptococcal (strep) or staphylococcal (staph) bacteria. I occur most of the time on a person’s face. I come out most often during the warm summer months

What I do:

I sometimes cause blisters that break easily leaving raw, “oozing” skin exposed. You can tell what I do when you look at your insect bites, cuts, scrapes and burns. I usually leave an “oozing” discharge or a honey-colored crust on your sores.

How to Stop Me:

If you want me to go away, wash the sore area with soap and water and cover me lightly after drying as much as possible. Get some medicine and wait a day of treatment before returning to school or work. Make sure to wash your hands if you touch me or I will spread to other spots or other people!
