"Wash your hands for dinner!!!"
Sometimes, it seems like asking this simple task of your kids is the same as asking them to work a hard day in the mines.
The groans.
The eye rolls.
The dawdling!!!

Well, American Teacher Courtney Lee Simpson explains on Facebook the disgusting experiment that just gave your kids every reason they need to wash their hands...

Disgusting Sandwich

"To all my teacher friends this is the grossest yet coolest experiment. I did this while teaching about germs and how they spread. You use three pieces of bread. You let all the kids see you put a piece of bread in a baggy with a glove on hence "controlled" then you wash your hands and put a piece of bread in a baggy for "clean" last but definitely not least you pass a piece of bread around and let every kid in class touch it then you put it in a baggy and label it dirty. Watch how the bread changes over time due to germs. It is so cool and a great way to teach the importance of hand washing"

If this doesn't get them washing their hands, we don't know what will.

Good luck.
