Messing Around

Bread that the whole class touched without washing their hands.


The Resource Science class received a firsthand look on the value of washing your hands.  The class took three pieces of bread and put them in baggies.  The first piece nobody touched, the second piece only the teacher touched after washing his hands, and the third piece the whole class touched with their germy hands.  After that the bread was placed underneath a tote with no light.  Finally, after a couple of weeks the class received some results that were pretty amazing.  The germy bread had mold and ugly spots all over while the clean pieces still looked edible.  So the class learned a very valuable lesson; wash your hands often and especially before you eat or if you’re sick.
