Grades K-3 Students Learn About the Importance of Hand Washing with Let’s Talk Science!

STEM StorytimeWashing Your Hands

Students at Sudbury Catholic Schools joined the Let’s Talk Science Team for STEM Storytime yesterday afternoon.  

Students listened to Helen Patuck’s book, “My Hero Is You” read by Angelica, a graduate student at University of Guelph in the Plant Agriculture program.

Then together with our students, she completed a hands-on science activity about the importance of soap and washing your hands!

Students used water, black pepper and soap to learn about germs, how they spread and the importance of washing our hands as an effective way to prevent the spread of infections.

Register now for weekly STEM Storytime series on Tuesdays at 1pm.  Each week a Let’s Talk Science Outreach student will read a storybook followed by a hands-on activity.  

If teachers cannot make it to a live session, they can register and will be sent a link to the recording afterwards. 

Also, for each week that a class participates in a STEM Storytime live event, they will receive an entry in Let’s Talk Science’s monthly draw for a $50 gift card to buy books for your classroom! 

Upcoming listings can be found on the events section of the Let’s Talk Science website:
