Recently, 6th class have been learning about the useful and harmful effects of micro-organisms and microbes in the environment. Made up of bacteria, fungi and viruses, these micro-organisms are found almost everywhere on earth. Although extremely small, micro-organisms come in many different forms.
To examine micro-organisms in more detail, the 6th class conducted a variety of experiments examining the presence and the effects of micro-organisms on human life. The first experiment conducted examined the presence of microbes on hands and effects of handwashing on these microbes.
