Your First Challenge!
You will be solving four puzzles to "unlock" the digital codes! Watch the video below and then click on the link below that to do the challenge. if you solve all four puzzles, you will BREAK OUT! When you click on each lock, it will show you what you are looking for such as numbers, colors, directions or letters. Read the clue and look at the picture carefully. If you don't get it right the first time you hit submit, hit clear and try again. You won't get them right on the first try and that's okay! Part of being a good detective is looking at the clues and trying again.

Why is it important to wash your hands?
For this experiment you will need:
3 slices of bread
3 ziplock baggies
1 clean hand, one dirty hand and one dirty surface
A marker or pen
Take your first slice of bread and rub your unwashed hands all over both sides. Put that slice of bread in a bag and label it "Dirty Hands."
Now wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds. Dry them and do the same thing with the bread. Label that bag "Clean Hands."
Now think of the dirtiest thing in your house. It could be your toilet seat, a phone or tablet or maybe even your dog. Rub both sides of the bread over whatever surface you choose. Label it. (And ewww, wash your hands again!)
Make a prediction. What do you think will happen? Which bag of bread will grow the most mold in a few weeks? Why?
This experiment takes a few weeks to see results. While you are waiting click HERE and search for the books, Wash, Wash, Wash Your Hands! and A Germ's Journey.
