Science day was great fun! We had a visit from W5 and had to decide whether the experiments were science or magic. Some of us got a chance to come up and help with the experiments. Some things disappeared, some things whirled around and some things popped! When we came back to class we had a go at doing an experiment of our own. We talked about germs and how you cannot see them. We also talked about the importance of washing your hands. We put our hands into a tray of glitter and pretended that the glitter was germs. Every time we touched something glitter stuck to it, just like germs do. Our experiment was to see if the glitter comes off our hands better with soap and water than without soap and just water. We made our predictions and soon discovered that you really do need soap when you are washing your hands. More germs come off!
