The sun is shining and the children are having lots of fun. This week is science week and the children have being experimenting with lots of different science projects. They are clever little scientist we have at Aqua.
Today with Donna, the children made a walking rainbow. They used a cup, water and tissue paper which Donna coloured the same as the rainbow. The children each got one and had to place the coloured part inside and watch as the colours walked up the tissue. It took a little while, but the children were fascinated as colours started to change. Red turned to orange and orange turned to yellow. What fun.
With Helena the children made volcanos erupt, they used cups, water, vinegar and bi-carb soda. The children used fine motor skills to pull the vinegar into the syringe and squirt it inside the cup. The children squealed with delight as bubbles started to form.
With Alejandra the children made some dancing pepper. These little scientist used, water, pepper and que tips. When the water was in the bowl, pepper was placed on top and when the children placed their que tips in, the pepper started to jump away from the tip. It was awesome and the children were fascinated with it.
Liza’s group had to help melt the ice which where holding cars inside. The children were instructed to use syringe’s with water, their hands and paper towels to help melt the ice. As I type Domenici, Levi and Harvey are still trying to melt the ice, they were so engaged and still are. Amazing!!
Teacher Hannah joined us at Aqua today and her little group made a sun for our display on the wall.
With nelson the children used large muscles and coordination skills to control the ball.
The children explored so well today in all areas and had a fun filled Thursday.
