The High Speed Hand Washing Basic Lesson Plan is used to teach the basic technique where hands are lathered up longer and groups can wash hands quicker. It can be used as a pre-curriculum lesson so food safety practices can be modeled during nutrition lessons before food is prepared or served. This lesson can be used indoors or outdoors with youth or adult groups. Adaptations for COVID-19 precautions are included.
Students enjoy performing the Sneaky Germ Skit to review proper hand washing for the class. Then, the class enjoys a rousing game of Win, Lose or Wash! affirming key times that you should wash your hands.
Modeling and practicing good hand washing before serving food samples in nutrition education lessons is time consuming and therefore usually neglected. The High Speed Hand Washing technique was developed to meet a need that could result in improved food safety in the classroom and at home. Classrooms can get their hands washed properly in five minutes or less, increasing students’ food safety awareness and actions. It can also reduce risk of spreading communicable diseases, while conserving water and energy. Presentation at Consumer Food Safety Educators Conference sponsored by the Partnership for Food Safety Education, March 2019.
Students who have learned High Speed Hand Washing in previous years revisit food safety with funny skit or game activities. Students review High Speed Hand Washing and practice it in their new classroom groups to get their class time under 5 minutes. Our research with 3rd though 8th graders over seven years shows that food safety practices may slip from year to year, but an engaging food safety activity revives and slightly increases their commitment to proper hand washing. Skits and games that can be adapted for most age groups are listed as Food Safety Activity Supplements.
