Washing Hands Experiment

We were learning about our bodies and how to take care of them for Preschool. We did an experiment to see what happens to our food if we don’t wash our hands. One of the apples was put in a jar and the other one was passed around to each child. The kids all coughed and breathed on the apple and then we put that in a jar and let it sit for 1-2 weeks. 

 It was pretty gross to see the apple that we passed around. It was a cool experiment that the kids could learn, hands on, why it was important to wash our hands. You have to be a little delicate in teaching this, so the kids don’t become germ-a-phobes.
