Welcome to another edition of Educational Video, a glimpse back to the glory days of educational films. In today’s 1947 video, we learn that Joan’s mother never learned the basics of avoiding germs and general health at home. but thanks to her daughter’s teacher, she is learning how to dress properly and dose out cod liver oil. We also see the stereotypical roles of the neat & proper girl versus germ-filled boys.
In this video, pay attention as you will learn:
• If you splashed in puddles, you got to go home early from school
• Kids got to stay home a lot more often back then
• Spitting in the toilet reduces germs in the bathroom
• Boiling dishes is necessary to kill germs from the infected ones
Yes, had they known this and more, poor George and Jim wouldn’t have missed out on all the fun.
