What our experts think
This germ-themed board game is easy to follow and a great way of introducing children to the concept of bacteria and biology. In current times, this is helpful for getting younger children talking about how germs spread – building their knowledge and also encouraging them to use scientific vocabulary.
As there were lots of medical terms on the cards, our testers felt this really challenged the children’s reading – however, as it was played more this became easier. The game is fast-moving which is great as it means you are able to enjoy several rounds and the team element is ideal for reinforcing children’s turn-taking and teamwork skills.
