Captured in a metropolitan Atlanta, Georgia primary school, seated amongst his classmates, this photograph depicts a young school boy, who was in the process of creating a drawing during this classroom session. The classmate sitting to his left was bringing her ideas to life, first using a pencil, to be followed by colorful crayons. Note that the boy was focused on a drawing book that referenced fantasy figures, and was seemingly oblivious to all the classroom activity surrounding him. 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.
