In Health we have been learning about illness and disease. We have learned a lot about germs and bacteria and what they can do. Today we started 2 experiements that will last all of this week, and into next.
1. The first experiment is showing why it is important to wash your hands. We have 3 pieces of bread- one was handled with a glove ( so no germs), one was handled with 1 pair of clean hands, and the last was handled by our whole class’ dirty hands (ick!)
2. The next experiment is going to show us how our skin protects our bodies from germs causing illness. The happy apple has no cuts in his skin to let the germs in. The sad apple has cuts which will allow the germs to get inside.
We will be observing both the bread and the apples this week to see if anything changes…….
