Germ science!

Today (05.02.18) we looked at hygiene and how humans keep healthy by keeping clean. We talked about germs and what they do - there are good germs and bad germs - and how we can keep bad germs away from our bodies. We decided the best way was to wash our hands often but what is the best way to wash our hands?


We did an experiment to find out. We used glitter to represent the germs on our hands and how easily they spread from person to person. We washed our hands in three ways: with cold water; with warm water; and with warm water and soap. Which way do you think worked best?


Soap and warm water got all of the germs off of our hands when we used the soap properly, so from now on we're going to make sure we wash our hands well with warm water and soap!
