Hand washing experiment

This afternoon we had a discussion about the importance of washing our hands properly then we started a little experiment to see what happens to food when we touch it with dirty hands. 

We had 3 slices of bread. The first slice was carefully put inside a plastic food bag without anybody's hands touching it. The second slice was put into a bag after I washed my hands. The third slice was passed around for the children to touch with unwashed hands and then put inside a bag. 

We had a little chat about germs being so small that we can't see them and even though all three slices look the same in the bags the children think that the third slice has got the most germs on it from all of their hands. We will have to wait and see what happens to the three slices over the next few weeks.
