Hello scientists, this is Meteor Martin and I am going to discuss our lessons for the week of Nov. 5th, 2018. First, we had Kindergartner’s work on Weather Wizards. Next some 3rd graders loved The Body Shop and finally we studied ecosystems with 5th graders and went on an Eco Safari.
For Weather Wizards, we discussed and discovered different weather events and climates as the children had a chance to “touch” lightning and “see” thunder. Next, we went ice fishing, and the kids learned to pick up ice with a piece of string using a secret ingredient. Finally, we all made instant snow that the teacher could keep and use it throughout the school year.
The Body Shop was a blast! The 3rd graders were able to see first hand digestion of a cracker using saliva. Then, everyone made a polymer very similar to how our digestive system takes food and turns it into energy. Next, we got to take a very close, HANDS ON look at a cow liver, kidney and heart. The reactions of the children were priceless.
Finally, this week, we went on a safari to explore and talk about ecosystems. The children made a rain forest from the ground up as we spoke about its different layers and what they are comprised of. Next, each child made there very own corral reef with bright colors and sea weed.
Whew, What A Week!!! Now to get supplies ready for some more fun and exciting hands-on experiments next week!
