Captured in a metropolitan Atlanta, Georgia primary school, was this grouping of school boys and girls, who were gathered at a table, each in the process of creating a piece of artwork. The students were supplied with a piece of white drawing paper, a pencil, and a box of crayons. One boy was looking at what one of his classmates was creating, possibly searching for some inspiring ideas. It is important to know that objects, including pencils, crayons, paper, etc., 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.
