Growing Germs!!

We enjoy applied learning! Home Science Tools is one of our favorite online sources for science kits. Last month's Young Science Explorers newsletter was all about Germs. My older child sent in a question about germs, and her question was picked and featured in the newsletter! Yay! Each newsletter has cool experiments for you to try out! Below is the experiment Growing Germs.

Put first slice of potato into a bag and mark Control.

Rub second potato all over on floor and mark bag Floor.

Take third potato outside and rub dirt on it.

Remove gloves and rub hands all over fourth potato.

Place bags in a dark cool place. Wait one week. Stay tune for our results!

Learning all the time!
