We have been thinking a lot about germs this week! We investigated what a germ looks like up close under a microscope and learned that when you sneeze, germs can travel up to 100 mph from your nose!
To see germs in action, we started a germ experiment. One half of the class washed their hands with just water, and one with soap and water. Each child pressed their hand on a piece of bread, then we place each piece of bread into an experiment bag in the window. We have a "control" bread, and talked about scientists always want a comparison for their experiments.
We will check to see how our bread grows germs next week, and see if using soap results in fewer germs on the bread! Stay tuned!
