Primary 5 are focusing on hygiene and cleanliness particularly when handling food this term in Health and Wellbeing. To help us understand germs better we decided to make our own. We took four potato pieces and using gloves rubbed them in different areas. The first one was our control so we did nothing to it, the second we rubbed all over our classroom floor, hopefully we didn’t leave too much mess. The third piece we took outside and the fourth piece we all touched with our bare hands. Each potato piece went into a sealed and labelled bag and Miss Davidson put these in a dark warm cupboard for a week, after which we will see what we have grown.
We were so busy concentrating on our experiments that we forgot to take photos but fear not we will take some of our results!!
