Kelly Caldwell’s students at Dubach School participated in the LSU AgCenter Germ Cave Exhibit. The Germ Cave shows students just how quickly germs spread. They learned that the No. 1 way to reduce the spread germs is to wash their hands.
Students participated in the five steps for washing hands, 1) wet hands with clean water, warm if it’s available, 2) rub hands together with soap and scrub all surface, 3) rub hands together vigorously for 20 seconds, 4) rinse hands well under running water, 5) dry hands with a paper towel or air dryer. Turn the faucet off with paper towel if possible.
