Investigating science tools and color changes
We were lucky enough to have a special guest scientist come to our class this week, Ms. Melissa, who is also a parent in our school. She taught us how to use a science tool called a pipette, and we got to spend a long time investigating how to move water from one spot to another, including making drips and squirts. Then she gave us colored water and we made beautiful and innovative color creations in ice cube trays. This was an incredibly fun experience and I had multiple students tell me they wanted to do this every day. :) Sensory learning experiences are so important for early childhood learners (and older kids as well), and one of the best way to learn about scientific concepts is through hands-on investigations - and we were lucky enough to do both this week!
