An event every year that begins at 12:00am on of October, repeating indefinitely
According to Wikipedia, “Global Handwashing Day (GHD) is a campaign to motivate and mobilize millions around the world to wash their hands with soap. It takes place on October 15th of each year. The campaign is dedicated to raising awareness of handwashing with soap as a key approach to disease prevention.” Soap might seem like a strange theme for a classroom but how about asking your class how is soap made? This simple question can get much of the curriculum covered through science, history, English, maths, etc. Even the arts subjects can be covered! Of course, the main message is to promote Global Handwashing Day but have some fun while you’re doing it! [Image: GHD]
