Do we need to wash our hands? by the children
In Science this week we have been investigating the importance of washing our hands. We wash our hands a lot at school, mainly when we have been to the toilet and just before we eat our lunch. We wanted to know why it was such an important thing to do. We decided to investigate it with 3 slices of bread.
Slice 1 was the control slice and was not touched by anyone at all.
Slice 2 was touched by everyone in the class with unwashed hands.
Slice 3 was touched by everyone in the class with clean, dry hands.
This experiment is one that needs observing over time before we know the results. Tune in next week to find out what happened!
