Today we conducted an experiment to see how quickly and easily germs are spread around our classroom. We each wet our hand and got a friend to pour glitter onto it. we shook hands with our friends and gave high fives. Soon there was glitter everywhere! we tried to wipe the glitter off with a paper towel but it didn’t work very well. We had to wash our hands with soap and water to get all the glitter away.
We found out that this exactly how germs are spread even though we cant see them as easily as the glitter. Every time we touch something we are spreading germs. We found out that most of these germs are harmless but some of them can make us sick.
We decided that is important to wash our hands, before we eat, after playing outside and also when we have coughed and sneezed.
