You will not want to miss doing this bacteria science experiment of growing a germ farm with your homeschool. If you are like me, while reading this title, you immediately made a “yuck” face. I was like “ill”! You can either use this experiment with germs on your hands or, brace yourself… on your counters or surfaces around the home. As I am typing this sentence, I am grossed out thinking of what I would see. I challenge you to try this fascinating experiment Unfortunately, this post tells the truth when stating that “teaching germs to kids is easier when they can SEE the germs.” Hopefully, it will motivate them to use proper hand-washing techniques.
