Give your students Swine Flu

Add a humerous twist to your discussions with Giant Microbes. Anyone who has been to our training course will know that we love the cute and cuddly bugs from STDs to sore throats and everything in between. And now they’ve added Swine Flu to the Giant Microbe family.

Giant Microbes make fantastic talk objects which help manage classroom discussion becasue only the person holding the object is allowed to speak. Matching your talk object to the topic of discussion in this way adds a fun dimension to the lesson – we watched a great lesson at Westminster Academy last year on microwaves where the talk object was a rubber hand (wave… do you get it?).
