Brush your teeth, Jean.

Put some hair gel in, Jean.

It's a beautiful sunny day. Jean wakes up after a great night's sleep and can't wait to get outside.

He's so excited that he doesn't bother finding any fresh clothes or underwear, he just puts on what he used the day before. Holly says that sometimes it's ok to wear some clothes again the next day, but that Jean should always wear fresh, clean underwear.

Is Holly right?

No, he should always wear clean clothes every day.

No, it's fine to wear the same clothes and underwear again if they're not dirty.

After a hot shower and brushing his teeth, Jean is ready to go for a walk in the park.

After a long walk, Holly and Jean decide to grab a coffee and a bun in the park cafe. Jean knows that he must clean his hands before he eats anything, however the cafe's toilets are out of order. 

Holly has a rummage in her rucksack and finds a packet of tissues and some hand gel.

Which one would should Jean and Holly use to clean their hands?

the tissues

After coffee Holly and Jean carry on walking into the city. They go to the shops and also to the library. On the way home, Holly is thirsty so they call into the shop for a bottle of water.

yes

no

That evening, Holly and Jean order a curry from the takeaway.

Has Jean made the correct choice?

yes

no

  • Question 1

It's time for supper. Jean is in the garden investigating the plants, he has soil and mud on his hands.

What should Holly tell Jean to do?

CORRECT ANSWER
Scrub his hands and fingers using hot water and soap.
EDDIE SAYS
You should always wash your hands before you eat a meal. Use soap and hot water and give them a proper good scrub.
It's really important that you wash your hands properly, because bacteria and other nasties live in soil and could be transferred inside your body when you eat. This could make you very ill.
  • Question 2

Holly has made some tea and toasted crumpets for supper. Unfortunately, Jean drops some jam onto the kitchen floor. It makes a bit of a mess.

Jean picks up the jam with his spoon, he looks at Holly for some advice.

Should he spread it onto his crumpet?

CORRECT ANSWER
no
EDDIE SAYS
No, Jean should not spread the jam on the crumpet.
It's a horrible shame to waste food but all sorts of nasties could be transferred to the crumpet and these could make Jean quite ill. If you walk through your kitchen with your shoes on, or have a pet that goes outdoors like a cat or dog, then bacteria and other micro-organisms could be transferred from their feet or your shoes to the floor.
  • Question 3

It's bed time, Jean has had a very long day getting used to his new surroundings. 

He's got his pyjamas on and is about to turn in for the night when Holly suddenly remembers that she needs to tell Jean to do something.

What is it that she needs to tell Jean?

CORRECT ANSWER
Brush your teeth, Jean.
EDDIE SAYS
It's a bit of a waste of hair gel if you're going to put it in just before bedtime, but you will wake up with some spectacular bed hair!
You should always brush your teeth at night and in the morning, especially if you've had crumpets for supper.
  • Question 4

It's a beautiful sunny day. Jean wakes up after a great night's sleep and can't wait to get outside.

He's so excited that he doesn't bother finding any fresh clothes or underwear, he just puts on what he used the day before. Holly says that sometimes it's ok to wear some clothes again the next day, but that Jean should always wear fresh, clean underwear.

Is Holly right?

CORRECT ANSWER
Yes
EDDIE SAYS
You should always wear clean underwear (and socks) every day.
Underwear is worn next to your skin all day, it will get quite smelly if you wear the same underwear two days in a row.
Sometimes you can wear the same top layers of clothes like a jumper or a pair of trousers twice, as long as you didn't get them dirty the day before. This is quite a sensible thing to do as it will cut down the number of times you have to wash these clothes and will save energy and water.
  • Question 5

Jean is desperate for the toilet. What should Holly remind Jean to do after he has finished?

Choose two answers.

CORRECT ANSWER
Flush the toilet.
Wash your hands with hot, soapy water.
EDDIE SAYS
It's really important that you always flush the toilet and wash your hands with hot, soapy water after you use the toilet.
Nasty diseases can spread if you do not use good hygiene skills after you have visited the toilet.
  • Question 6

Jean has breakfast. He has some frosties and thinks they're great.

What should he do with his empty bowl and spoon after he has finished his breakfast?

CORRECT ANSWER
Wash them up.
EDDIE SAYS
It's quite disgusting to leave your dirties on the side, and even worse to just put them back in the cupboard.
Wash them up using, yep you've got it, hot, soapy water!
If you leave your dirties on the side then bacteria can grow on the leftovers. This is not only gross, but also quite dangerous and could lead to food poisoning.
  • Question 7

After a hot shower and brushing his teeth, Jean is ready to go for a walk in the park.

After a long walk, Holly and Jean decide to grab a coffee and a bun in the park cafe. Jean knows that he must clean his hands before he eats anything, however the cafe's toilets are out of order. 

Holly has a rummage in her rucksack and finds a packet of tissues and some hand gel.

Which one would should Jean and Holly use to clean their hands?

CORRECT ANSWER
the hand gel
EDDIE SAYS
The hand gel is the best one to use because it is antibacterial. This means it kills bacteria.
  • Question 8

After coffee Holly and Jean carry on walking into the city. They go to the shops and also to the library. On the way home, Holly is thirsty so they call into the shop for a bottle of water.

Holly buys a bottle of water and Jean buys a bag of crisps. Soon Jean is thirsty too, but they're back in the park and the cafe has now closed for the day.

Holly is a kind girl and thinks she should offer Jean a drink from her water bottle.

Do you think this is a sensible thing to do?

CORRECT ANSWER
no
EDDIE SAYS
It's very kind of Holly to offer her drink to Jean but it is not a very sensible idea. All sorts of nastiness can be transferred from one person to another when you share drinks, for example cold sores or even serious diseases like meningitis.
  • Question 9

That evening, Holly and Jean order a curry from the takeaway.

Their food is delicious and really spicy, but they've ordered too much. Holly decides to save it and eat it for supper later in the week. Jean thinks that's an excellent idea and offers to tidy up the leftovers and store them.

Where should Holly tell Jean to keep the leftover food?

CORRECT ANSWER
in the fridge
EDDIE SAYS
Fridges are set at a low temperature on purpose so that bacteria and other micro-organisms do not grow very quickly. If Jean left the curry on the side or in the cupboard then bacteria could grow very quickly indeed and this could be very dangerous for Holly when she wants to eat the curry again.
  • Question 10

It's nearly bed time again. Jean has really enjoyed his first few days among humans.

Before he goes to bed, he has a shower, brushes his teeth and puts on his pyjamas. He washed his hair in the shower and still has wet hair. Holly is asleep and Jean doesn't want to disturb her to ask for her advice. He decides to dry it using her hair dryer.

Has Jean made the correct choice?

CORRECT ANSWER
yes
EDDIE SAYS
Don't go to bed with wet hair! It's not very sensible because you will get damp and could wake up with a cold.
