This year in particular, 6th class felt that it made sense to investigate germs and bacteria in science. They learned that four most common groups of germs (or pathogens) are bacteria, viruses, fungi and protozoa. They discussed how it is common to believe that all germs are bad, but that most germs do not harm you at all and some are even good for you. Nonetheless, it is important to wash hands and surfaces properly...and the results of an experiment that investigated the cleanliness of different surfaces in our classroom had their teachers scrubbing the walls with disinfectant. Have a look!
