WE BEGAN OUR LESSONS WITH AN OVERVIEW OF BEING AN INDIVIDUAL AND HOW WE USE OUR HANDS AND FEET FOR ACTIONS. STUDENTS ALSO OBSERVED A FEW SCIENCE TOOLS THAT WE WILL BE USING.
OBSERVING SUNFLOWERS AND THEIR CHARACTERISTICS WITH MAGNIFYING GLASSES WAS NEXT.
THE STUDENTS LEARNED THE SUNFLOWER LIFE CYCLE.
PRIMARY COLORS WITH COLOR WANDS AND OBSERVATION OF THE COLOR VILES TO SEE COLORS MIX TO MAKE NEW COLORS WAS A BIG HIT! STUDENTS THEN PLAY A COLOR GAME AND SORT COLOR OBJECTS.
JUST ASK YOUR CHILD ABOUT THE NORTH AND SOUTH POLES OF A MAGNET.
USING MAGNETS OF ALL SORTS AND SIZES IS A WELCOMED ACTIVITY.
WITH THE BEAUTIFUL FALL WEATHER THE CHILDREN ARE EXPLORING THE OUTDOOR GARDEN TO SEE WHAT WE CAN FIND WITH MAGNIFYING GLASSES. A PRAYING MANTIS, BUTTERFLIES, AND FLOWERS ARE SEEN MOST FREQUENTLY.
COMING UP WE WILL BE EXPLORING THE FOLLOWING TOPICS: GOURDS, PUMPKINS, GERMS AND WEATHER.
IN THE SCIENCE ROOM LOTS OF HANDS ON ACTIVITIES ARE BEING EXPLORED. IT IS STRESSED THAT THE STUDENTS ARE RESPECTFUL OF SCIENCE TOOLS AND MATERIALS. THANK YOU!
Moving along your children are focused and challenged in Science!
We have learned a number of new and exciting topics. The children used GLO GERMS with a blacklight to see how easy germs spread! YUCK!
Weather is a continuous topic, and the changes to the environment made by weather.( Which in Ocean County is visible.)
Winter hibernation, Non-Living and Living, Dental health, and Human heart were also subjects covered.
