Elementary School Teachers Try Out An Interesting White Bread Experiment And It Goes Viral | #MakerEducation
An especially effective reminder to your students to wash their hands, especially during peak germ season, from DeMilked.
It always baffles me how some people think not washing your hands after leaving the restroom is completely okay. You’d think it’s common sense, especially with so many nasty bacteria already living on our hands, but apparently not everyone thinks that way. Recently, two teachers – Jaralee Metcalf and Dayna Robertson – found an interesting experiment called “How clean are your hands?” online that shows just how much bacteria lives on our hands, and decided to try it out with their students.
