From the Chilled Food Association, this resource helps children to think about food hygiene and in particular the importance of washing hands. The materials are aimed at STEM ambassadors but are readily adapted for use by teachers in the classroom.
The materials consist of a lesson plan, stimulus materials and suggested activities. In this case, children look at the bugs and microbes that can cause food to become spoilt and ways in which this can be prevented. There is then an investigation which looks at the most effective way to clean hands and so prevent the spread of microbes onto food.
