Ms.Kavanagh’s 3rd class have been learning about how germs spread and importance of good hygiene. They used slices of bread and left them on different surfaces for 60 seconds (the floor, a phone, a desk and a shoe). A child also coughed on a slice. One child washed his hands with soap and water and held that slice. The results have been astounding!!
Mould has grown on every slice bar the slice that was touched by washed hands. The class proudly presented their experiment at the whole school assembly on Friday. They have also asked different classes to come into their classroom to explain their experiment to others. These 3rd class children are keen to spread the message “Wash you hands regularly to stop the spread of germs!” 🙌🏻💦🙌🏻💦
