Learning about germs

The Nursery – P4 children learned about germs.

First they did an experiment with glitter to see how easily germs spread.

Then we did another experiment.

First we dipped our fingers into water with pepper in (the pepper represented the germs):

Then we dipped our fingers into soap:

The soap on our fingers meant that the pepper couldn’t stick. The germs were repelled!

We learned that we should always use soap when we wash our hands.
