Secondary - Respiratory Hygiene: Multimedia
This section aims to teach students how poor respiratory hygiene can lead to the spread of microbes and disease. Did you know that microbes can travel up to 1m in a single sneeze! Students observe on a large scale how far microbes are carried when they sneeze and how many people can be effected. Through a set of trial experiments, students learn that covering your mouth with a tissue when you cough and sneeze helps prevent the spread of infection. The extension activity asks students to consider how far a virus can spread in 1 week. The results can be astounding!
