This is a fun and engaging experiment for studying how hand washing helps to prevent the spread of germs.
Read aloud or have students read The Case of the Spreading Sickness. This is about a detective who is called to the local elementary school. The 4th grade class is protesting hand washing because they think it won't stop the spread of the flu. Detective Grimes comes up with an experiment to show them how dirty hands spread sickness faster than clean hands. Students are asked to complete the experiment for themselves and come to conclusions. They record their findings on an observation sheet which is provided.
