It has been a busy week learning about Body Parts. Please check out the resources for 2 songs we have been learning and acting out.
We have been doing some science and art experiments with colours and mixing primary colours which create secondary ones.
We started an experiment today involving using white flowers and putting them into coloured water. Students were to pose questions about what they saw.
These are some of the questions they had:
"How long are the flowers going to last?" ~Sydney
"Will the flowers die?" ~ Kai
"Will the petals fall off when it dies?"~ Riley
"What will happen if the flowers don't die?" ~ Estelle
"Will the stem change colour when we put the colouring in the water?" ~ kai
We put the colour in the pots and then put the white flowers in.
They made predictions:
"The stem will become white." ~ Juliet
"Maybe the stem will turn red?" ~ Natalie
"The water will go up the stem and the flower will become red." ~ Maple
"If the flower stays a long time, it will change colour." ~ Jakob
"The white flower in the blue water will turn blue." ~ Lauren
"The white flowers in the blue water will stay white." ~ Eli
"The flower in the 2 colours, will change colour to purple." ~Maple, Jakob, Juliet, Lauren, Isha, Kai, Saddie, Sauvin et Estelle.
No changes occured while we were in class today so we will have to wait and see for Monday.
