Last week we also explored the importance of washing our hands effectively. We conducted an experiment to find out which was the most effective way to wash our hands clean. We sprayed a little oil onto our hands and dipped them in some flour. Then we tried washing them in 4 different ways. We used cold water alone, cold water with soap, warm water alone and warm water with soap. We found out that the most effective way to wash our hands was with soap and warm water.

Today we have been finding out about the importance of exercise to keep our bodies fit, strong and healthy. We did an experiment to find out what happens to our bodies when we exercise. We exercised vigorously for 1 minute, then 3 minutes and then 5 minutes to find out how our bodies changed.
