KS1 - Handwashing Experiment

KS1 have been having fun being scientists this week. We researched the scientist Joseph Lister and then used our new knowledge to conduct an experiment to find out whether soap and water is better than hand sanitiser. We covered out hands in a special cream that shows up the germs, then we looked at them under a lightbox and we then washed our hands with soap and water before looking at our hands again. Our teachers then showed us her hands after just using hand sanitiser, followed by having used soap and water.. We discovered that our hands were cleaner after using soap and water. 

 

Thank you to Mrs Bone for letting us borrow the lightbox.
