Germs, Germs, Germs

We thought about germs last week, and read the story Germs, Germs, Germs.  The book reminded us that germs love it when we don't wash our hands--but what does that REALLY look like?  It was time to find out...

In the spirit of science, we used agar plates to see if we had any germs on our hands.  Here are the plates before the experiment:

So clean and red!  

Each child pressed their fingers onto an agar plate, and then we covered them and left them alone over the weekend to see what would happen.  And then we saw... 

GERMS!  GERMS!  GERMS!  Ewwww.... so this was a great visual reminder to us to always wash our hands!  A big thank you to one of our families for supplying the plates!
