A Science Experiment

We have been learning about why it is so important to keep ourselves clean. We decided to try to find out what was the best way to remove bacteria and germs from our hands.

We put cinnamon and oil on the hands of 3 children. We had to make sure it was the same amount. We also allowed each child to wiggle their hands in the water for 3 seconds. We had to do this to make sure it was a fair test.

Picture 1 Child 1 washed his hands in cold water.
Picture 2 They were still very dirty.
Picture 3 Child 2 washed her hands in warm water.
Picture 4 They were a little cleaner.
Picture 5 Child 3 washed her hands with soap and warm water.
Picture 1 They turned out to be the cleanest.
