Lab coats, goggles, magnify glasses and beakers were all over the classroom last week! This was such a fun theme! I incorporate science into our lessons almost every day, but an entire week of just that!!?? I was in love...and so were the kids! This really peaked all their curious little brains. Some of the questions were even far beyond my knowledge. :) There were so many different experiments going on, some of which were, well, kind of duds. But, that's the purpose I suppose!
Here are only a few things (my hands were full of stuff most of the time-which means not a whole lot of photos) we had buzzing around.
|Electricity Ball! This child had way too many questions about electricity that I couldn't answer! We looked them up online and he lost interest when I tried to give him the answers...they were way over our heads! :)|
|Helicopters: This is the directions on how to make a paper helicopter. Add a paperclip to the area you fold. Thinner paper spins much easier than thicker paper.|
|Hold it up very high, we stood on chairs, and then drop. They spin! Very fun, very entertaining and it (child's attention) lasts a very long time!!|
|Penny Cleaning: Add "dirty" pennies to vinegar and salt|
|Can you tell a difference? The right penny had been cleaned in the solution. Yeah, it was pretty uneventful.|
|Pepper Scatter: Add pepper to water|
|Pepper scatters when you add a drop of dish soap!|
