Students' Work

We learnt about a multimeter. I tried it on my skin but it didn't work. But when I put water on my skin, it did work. I thought it wouldn't work but it worked really well. I was happy that it worked. I tried it on the window but it didn't work. I tried it on paper but it didn't work either. I wonder if it would work on my tongue.
