Germs were growing!! After the long weekend, we examined our Petri dishes and found that our fingertips have germs on them. Here are the dishes and you can see the germs growing from where each child pressed their fingertips. As the class said, "ewwwwww!" Now we really know that it's important to wash our hands thoroughly! We also visited Mrs. Kavermann from the health office. She spoke to several kindergarten classes about hand-washing and covering a cough with your elbow or sleeve.
