This game from KET has two challenges – hand washing and teeth brushing. In the first challenge, young learners have 30 seconds to scrub all the dirt off of some pretty filthy hands. In the second challenge, children have two minutes to brush through layers of food and grime until the teeth sparkle.
To preschool-age children, 30 seconds can seem like hours, and two minutes an eternity. So when you ask them to wash their hands for 30 seconds or brush their teeth for two minutes, chances are they will barely make it 20 seconds on either task.
A great way to give students a concept of these time frames is to have them perform simulations of these tasks for the recommended amounts of time. The two-part game Healthy Me does exactly that. It is a fun, interactive way for kids to get a sense of how long 30 seconds and two minutes are so that they have a better understanding of how much time they need to spend washing their hands and brushing their teeth.
