This week, Year 2 have begun to investigate germs as part of our healthy living science topic. We want to understand how germs and bacteria are spread and whether washing your hands with soap and water really works to reduce the spread!
1. We placed our unwashed hands over one piece of bread and the sealed it in a zip lock bag.
2. We then thoroughly washed our hands with soap and water before touching the next piece bread and again placing it in a sealed zip lock bag.
3. Our third piece of bread is our 'control' bread. This piece was handled with a glove on and did not touch our hands at all, again placing it in a sealed zip lock bag.
We will monitor the bread for changes and see if we can answer our questions next week!
