Personal hygiene is how you care for your body and maintain good health.

As we go through our daily life, we encounter millions of bacteria and viruses. They reside on other people, objects, and just about everywhere. If these things are left to linger on our bodies, they can make us very sick. To protect ourselves from this there are number of healthy practices we can take on. This includes washing your hands before you have the chance to touch your mouth, nose, or eyes with bacteria that may reside on them. It also includes trimming our nails so that germs and dirt can not build up under them. While this may seem come place to most people, not all families have the time or resources to insure their young children know all basic practices them should follow to maintain a high level of health. Those that do know the proper ways to maintain quality hygiene do not know all the steps that they should do. Most students are not aware that they should brush their teeth for a minimum of two minutes or that they should wash their hand and forearms up to their elbow.

These worksheets will look at daily habits we encourage all students to partake in to maintain the highest level of personal health possible. We start off by reviewing a checklist of healthy habits for you. We get further into how to care for our teeth and full oral hygiene that any Dentist would be in awe of. We also include fun activities that students can take part in as a class. We explore healthy routines that students should be aware of. We also look at the difference between positive and negative forms of these habits. Overall, we find that teachers really find this collection of worksheets very unique as we have a different take on how you should approach students with this topic.
