To round off our work on Alexander Flaming and bacteria, P2 invited parents to take part in a mold experiment. Children pressed unwashed hands onto a fresh slice of bread, they then washed their hands and repeated the process. We placed these into individual zip locked bags. So we could compare the results we also put a slice of untouched bread into a zip lock bag. We have waited a week to see the results. Here they are…
Untouched bread has no mold spores
Touched by unwashed hands has lots of unhealthy mold spores.
Hmmm….. we need to wash all our hand and not just our palms.
If we wash our hands properly the results are clear.
We are hoping this demonstrates to the children the importance of washing our hands before we eat and after we have been to the toilet.
