One slice of bread was untouched by hands and placed in a bag. Another was only touched by clean hands. The last slice was passed around the class allowing every student to touch it.

The results speak for themselves.

"To all my teacher friends this is the grossest yet coolest experiment," Allen writes. "I did this while teaching about germs and how they spread. You use three pieces of bread. You let all the kids see you put a piece of bread in a baggy with a glove on hence "controlled" then you wash your hands and put a piece of bread in a baggy for "clean" last but definitely not least you pass a piece of bread around and let every kid in class touch it then you put it in a baggy and label it dirty. Watch how the bread changes over time due to germs. It is so cool and a great way to teach the importance of hand washing."
