Washing your hands after you do some things can help keep you from getting sick.  Germs and viruses are sneaky and can hide on your hands just waiting for you to put your germy hands in your mouth (eating, putting finger or pencil/pen/eraser in mouth, touching teeth), eyes (by wiping tears or leaning on your hand that may touch your eyes), nose (wiping/itching nose) and even ears.  When your hands touch germs from your desk, telephone, computer, or anywhere and your germy hands get into your body (mouth, eyes, ears, nose) you can become sick.  So, wash your hands correctly and send those germs down the drain!
