This week I hosted my own science activities in class. We made our own goggles that we used all week. The sweeties LOVED them.
Monday was color mixing 101. Some of our activities included: hypothesizing what new color would be made by mixing two primary colors together.
The scientist recorded their hypothesis.
We then took turns mixing food coloring in water to see if our guesses were correct.
We then recorded our conclusion on our data sheets.
Tuesday was 'magnify the situation' day. We matched tiny pictures to bigger ones by looking at them through magnifying glasses.
We then looked at all sorts of objects with magnifying glasses to observe diffferent characteristics of each. Finally, we dipped our fingertips into ink pads to look at our fingerprints with magnifying glasses. We identified what type of fingerprint we had and then turned our prints into different kinds of objects, such as animals, people, and vehicles.
Wednesday was 'sink or float' day. We hypothesized about which objects could float and which ones would sink.
We tested our hypothesis and recorded our results on a fishbowl cut-out.
Thursday was 'magnificent magnets'. We hypothesized which objects would stick to a magnet and which ones would not. We recorded our results in a take home book. We used a water bottle to fill with objects attracted to a magnet. The little scientists took them home so they could conduct the experiment at home.
Check out these faces! They were so excited. :)
Whew! We packed a lot of learning in during this fun, fun week!!!
