Captured in a metropolitan Atlanta, Georgia primary school, was this grouping of four schoolboys, who were gathered at a brown paper-covered table, studying a stylized cartoon book to be used as reference material, for a drawing they were asked to create in the classroom. Each student was supplied with a piece of white drawing paper, a pencil, and a white tray of crayons, which was set atop the table on the left. It is important to know that these objects are known as fomites, and can act as transmitters of illnesses. Viruses and bacteria are able to remain alive on their surfaces after being handled by an ill child, who can then inadvertently transfer these germs to another child, who subsequently handles these schoolroom articles.
