What is gloop?? A big question all the students had when the word was mentioned. Cornflour and water. I wanted the scientist to explore and not to be restricted to a small tray so we used the big tables to conduct our experiment.
Through this activity the students were working on their fine motor skills, social skills and their communication skills.
We explored the properties of gloop the way it changers from a liquid to a solid form. The Busy Bees added colour and then a bit of Vanila essence to see the changers of smell and colour.
We did an experiment using water, Sprite and raisins. Please do ask your child about their observations.
We always try to make a note of what we saw.
Yoga can help develop young bodies, brains, self esteem and emotional health.
We use the speech bubble to express our ideas.

What do scientist do??
The Busy Bees are learning how to be good scientist. They are using their eyes to observe, their ears to listen, their mouth to share ideas and they are learning to take turns.
