Water Health Educator - Promoting advocacy for access to clean water
Learn: Fun for Educators
Water Health Educator is excited to launch our newest "Learn" pages, including this free resource for teachers for "go to" lesson plans and activities to use in the classroom, in homeschool, in camps or assemblies. Need a Water Health Educator staff member to help implement the lessons? Just ask.  Many of our college students are interested in continuing their outreach work in health knowledge sharing.
Most lesson plans will be a click-n-print/use PDF.  If you need a Word doc, please contact us (it's easier to click on the hyperlinks), otherwise, when referred to other websites, copy and paste URL into your browser.  Please check periodically for new lesson plans and activities!

Please check out the Facebook Page "George Mason University Patriots for Pure Water" to check out all of the latest workshops and education outreach by our University students! https://www.facebook.com/pages/George-Mason-University-Patriots-for-Pure-Water/174428269242774?fref=ts

Girl Scout Badge Fun
- Great for Journeys!

Thanks Lizette Ayala for heading up this troop's water badge!

WHE GMU Undergraduate Intern, Nicole Kraatz, discovered the neat educational materials offered by Glo-Germ, as she offered a workshop for children at a library for Global Handwashing Day.

The kids enjoyed using the Glo-Germ powder to see "germs" on their hands and then, after some tips on handwashing, including a handwashing song, they went to wash their hands. 

Nicole was able to show them where they missed "germs" after a look under the UV light, to remind kids to pay special attention to spots like between fingers and underneath nails.

For more information on how Glo-Germ works and how to get UV-sensitive powders and lotions to use in your classroom or event, go to http://www.glogerm.com/

Nicole made her own "glo box" and provided coloring pages, too.
