Icky Sicky needs to learn what makes you sick and what keeps your body safe, healthy and happy. Join Icky Sicky on an interactive journey as he learns about hand washing, teeth brushing, feelings, food and more! Students will try finding plaque on giant teeth, build a food pyramid, discover how germs spread with a black light and so much more as they help Icky Sicky discover just what it takes to keep our bodies in tip top shape.

Students will embark on an interactive journey and learn about five important ways to stay healthy!  As students are guided on a quest through the Five Healthy Kingdoms (Hands, Bodies, Food, Teeth & Emotions), they will be inspired to become a “HEALTHY ME” hero!

I loved The Presenter's enthusiasm. The field trip itself was excellent as it was relatable. Students at this age are very aware of healthy habits, so to take some time and discuss them is engagingly appropriate.
