In this activity, the kids cover their hands in dirt and try to wipe off the dirt using just a rag. Then they try to clean off the dirt using soap and water. After observing that the dirt comes off much better with soap and water, they see the purpose of washing your hands! Don't miss SID THE SCIENCE KID, the animated preschool series from The Jim Henson Company and KCET on PBS KIDS! (check local listings).
