Teach Kids About Germs: Healthy Habits Word Search Swap

This Word Search Swap challenge reminds kids what they’ve learned about germs and how to help prevent bad germs from spreading, by getting them to create a word search puzzle and swap it with the person sitting next to them.

Text saying "hooray for clean healthy hands"

Create a word search by placing the words related to germs, how they cross contaminate from our hands to surfaces and ways to help prevent bad germs from spreading into the empty boxes of the worksheet. Try going horizontal, diagonal, vertical, forwards and backwards. Fill in the spaces with random letters and swap your sheet with the person next to you and find the words they hid.
