Hand hygiene has been shown to reduce the incidence of absenteeism in schools as good hand hygiene reduces the spread of microbes and infection.
In the hand hygiene lessons, students carry out an experiment to observe how easily and far microbes can spread simply by shaking hands.
Students will also find out for themselves by performing an experiment or fair test which method is best for hand washing.
