Scientific Predictions

The importance of washing hands was just one part of a scientific experiment that second-graders in the health and wellness class learned. Students exposed potato slices to different areas of their classroom that they assumed would have germs including desks, doorknobs and the floor. They then made predictions on which potato slice contained the most germs and the least germs and observed and recorded their results. They concluded that their hands and their desks were two big hot spots for germs!
