Glo Germ is a fantastic product which safely and graphically demonstrates how germs are spread. Glo Germ consists of an odourless lotion and powder which glows brightly when exposed to ultraviolet light. Perfect for your health curriculum.
To demonstrate proper hand washing:
Have students rub Glo Germ lotion on their hands. This simulates the spread of thousands of tiny plastic fluorescent "germs" on their hands. Then, ask each students to wash their hands as they normally would. Finally, a fluorescent ultraviolet lamp may be used to spot the remaining "germs." Under the lamp, the plastic "germs" glow brightly so that they may be easily seen by the student.
To demonstrate how germs are spread through contact:
Shake a small amount of the powder into the palm of your hand and shake hands with several other people. Use the ultraviolet lamp to demonstrate that you have transferred "germs" to them.
This kit is excellent if you want mobility, since it does not require an electrical outlet.
