TEACHING POINT #1 GOOD HYGIENE LEADS TO BETTER HEALTH AND WELL BEING

Essential Question: What’s the direct connection between hygiene and wellness?

Being clean → better health using the example of hands

  • Washing hands keeps bacteria and viruses off of hands and fingers, so when you eat, those organisms don’t get onto your food and into your mouth (think about picking up a sandwich or licking your fingers after eating chips). 
  • Also, separate from eating, hands and fingers often end up rubbing eyes, picking noses, or inside the mouth (nail biting!) – if they’re germ-covered, those bacteria or viruses get inside the body. 

Separate from health, good hygiene can change a person’s social experiences

  • The way a person smells can affect how they are treated by others – have you ever noticed people keeping their distance from someone with bad breath?
  • Cleaning the body, washing hair, brushing teeth are important ways to show the world you respect your body enough to take good care of it. 
  • People who take better care of themselves often report feeling better which then changes their body language – they might smile more or stand up straighter!
