Product Description
I created this mini unit to {hopefully} get my kids to understand how important it is to wash their hands...REGULARLY! The bread experiment made for the perfect visual to get this point across, and it has been so exciting to watch the kids talk with enthusiasm to their peers about what they have learned. I teach a 3rd/4th grade blend, but many of these activities could easily be adapted for younger grades too! I would have no reservations about using many of them with my past kindergarten classes.

I included a sample unit plan structure, but only as a guide, obviously each class is unique. I had about 15 minute lessons for 2 weeks, but it could also be fit in a shorter time span.

*Please note...this is a science experiment. I cannot promise that it will work out perfectly every time! Climate, type of bread used (organic, fresh, preservatives, etc), moisture in the air...all these can play a factor in your outcome. For best results, I would recommend using bread from your local bakery that is fresh with minimal preservatives, but I have done the experiment with regular cheap bread and had it work great too. For an even more inclusive experiment, try several different kinds of breads. It's a science experiment, have fun with it! :)

What's included:
Example Picture
Experiment Directions and Unit Pacing
All About Germs Reading and Comprehension Papers
Germ Types
Germ Mapping
Hand washing Sequencing
Learning About Germs
Sandwich Science
“Write About It”-Response Papers
Word Bank Cards

I hope this unit is as valuable for your class as it was for mine!
