Discuss how the skin serves as protection against germs entering the body. When the skin is broken, band-aids can cover the skin to protect it until the skin heals. Choose 4-5 players to be “germs” and have them each choose a pinnie. On “Go!” players try to avoid being tagged by the germs. Each time the are tagged, they must put a band-aid (one of their hands) on the spot of the tag. If they have used up all of their hands and are tagged again, they must sit down where they were tagged, and wait for a teammate to unfreeze them by giving them an injection of medicine. Change “germs” and play again.
