"I see a pair of green gloves"
" I see a glass box"
" I see a few holes"
"I think this is a fish tank"
"I think the gloves are to feed the fish"
"I think we could fill in water to the box"
We are scientist and we need to be safe while we do our experiments. We are communicating and we are making connections. We made ooblick and many of the Busy Bees said that it looked like cake batter. We talked about the texture and the way it moves from a solid to a liquid.
The Busy Bees spent an entire morning painting the things that they see out in the garden. The observed the thing that they need to paint very carefully spent a great deal of time on perfecting their drawing. We did a gallery walk and made sure we listen to all our friends while they explained their masterpiece.
What did I learn as a scientist??
What is sink??? Does the object really stay at the bottom??
We experimented with ramps and found out that some objects rolled down the ramp faster than others. The conversations round the table really helped the Busy Bees to have a better understanding about how they need to set up the ramp, and the objects they need to roll down the ramp.
Why do I hear a strange sound??
Can I grade the shells in order of size??
Can the shell make an impression on the sand??
Our very own compost bin
The Busy Bees had many questions about the compost bin and they have recorded their observations. They will use the compost to grow their own plants.
Watching seeds grow
The young sceintist planted the seeds themselves and they made sure that they watered the plants everyday.
Sorting seeds in the science center helped our students with their fine-motor skills as well as their observation skills. They were given a mixed bowl of seeds which they had to seperate in to four small bowls.
What is a microcope??
Why do I have little lines on my thumb print??
Scissor skills which builds our concentration
The boys are learning to work as group while experimenting with the scale.
Work in progress sign has helped our young builders to save their work.
The Busy Bees are working on their sequencing skills.
