I thought you might like to try this experiment at home with your family. This experiment is a great way to understand how washing your hands keeps germs away!
Here’s what you’ll need: Materials: dish, pepper (represent germs), water, dish soap
Step 1: Pour water into the dish.
Step 2: Add lots of pepper to the water so that it covers the top of the water.
Step 3: Dip your finger into the dish. How much pepper (germs) touched your finger?
Step 4: Put soap on a different finger.
Step 5: Dip the soapy finger into the dish. What happened this time?
Step 6: You can write about your results in a notebook or on separate paper.
