Students in Mrs. Nikki Smith's Health class at the Middle School of Poplarville are learning about proper hygiene this week. 
As a class, they focused on ways to prevent the spread of germs and the correct ways to wash hands. Students were able to participate in the "Glo-Germ" experiment.  Each student rubbed the glo-germ powder on their hands, washed their hands, then placed their hands under a black light to see which spots still contained the "germs" (powder). 
The students were amazed when they noticed the parts of their hands that were not washed well.   The students loved the hands-on experiment and understood the importance of taking time to wash their hands properly!
