Germ investigation

The year 1 scientists have been very busy this week.  We have been investigating the best way to get rid of germs.  Using glitter and oil to represent the germs we get on our hands during the day we tried out three different ways to wash our hands:

1) Just using cold water
2) Using just warm water
3) Using warm water and soap

Most children predicted that there would have to be soap involved to get our hands really clean and our results clearly showed this to be a correct prediction.  We had great fun and learnt about the importance of soap. Take a look out our photos that show what we got up to.

Look at all those germs!

I wonder if the cold water will remove the germs?

You better get scrubbing that's a lot of germs!

Oh no the cold water hasn't taken off all the germs.

It looks like the warm water is better than the cold water but there are still germs left after washing.

Wow those hands are clean...do you think it is the soap?

Well done guys you have got lots of bubbles with that soap.

Super investigation well done year 1.
