ACS was donated some extra milk and in Room 1 we were able to do a special science experiment (talking about germs and washing our hands) and then later make a tasty treat.
Each child started with some milk in a bowl, we added some pepper, talking about how the pepper represents germs (after spending some time talking about what germs are). Then we put a finger into the pepper water and NOTHING happened! But then the children put soap on their finger and again put their finger in the milk. The pepper ran away from the soap. This was a great chance to have discussions about how we wash how hands, for how long, and using soap.
Next after all washing their hands the children got to mix together their own hot chocolate and milk and we warmed them up in the microwave! A tasty start to our afternoon!!
