Prevention and Cure
The facilitator explains the symptoms of a child having worms:
1. An itchy anus (4)
2. An extended stomach (5)
The cure is explained (card 20)
Three people are selected to come to the front and each given a card to hold up showing the different types of worms (1.2.3.)
All the transmission cards (6-13) are given out to the audience.
Each person with a prevention card (14-19) comes to the front and stands in front of the appropriate transmission card, thereby blocking that route, and explains how this can be done.
