Play the "Who am I?" germ game below. We also have a way to play the game that would be fun with a group. Don't forget to follow up this germ game with a Glo Germ lesson to emphasize hygiene principles!
Here is a great idea to mix and match the germ game elements: Use the germ descriptions from “Who Am I?” to construct the matching cards. One card has the germ name and the other should have the general description. For example, one card would read “Influenza” and another would read “I am a multi-strain virus. I cause high fevers, chills, congestion, coughing and muscle aches in my victims, etc.).
Construct as many unique virus cards as you desire, but duplicating is ok in order to make sure you have enough for the whole class. Ensure that you have a description card for each virus name (so they match).
First, mix the descriptions up (or tape them randomly under the students’ chairs). Hand out the cards (or have them get their cards from under their seats), but don’t let them look at their cards! Have each person tape their card to their back (have a neighbor help them).
Students or employees should then get up and try to figure out who they are and who they match with by asking other students. After everyone has their match, group them by virus and have the group read aloud who they are or what their description is. Create an effective learning experience by having a discussion about each virus. Here is part 2!
I am an infection of the liver. Although I am considered a total body illness, I spread through the intestine and stool. I usually arise 2 to 8 weeks after the person has ingested me in some form.
