what a wonderful first few weeks of school! we are learning all about science safety and science tools. We are also learning how we use our five senses to observe the world around us! next week we will begin conducting actual science experiments! we can't wait!
Today we worked on a project that required the planning and making of a flotation device for our little friend, swedish fish! Also, they worked on seeing how much money swedish fish could take along on her trip. below are some videos of our test runs with the boats and we also counted coins to see how many they could carry! it was great fun. Ms. smith and ms. van meter did a great job with the class today. thank you!!!
