We began this science project with deciding what a scientist was, did and names different types of scientists.
Next, as a student read and checked off the steps from the procedure checklist, I modeled the steps.
Then it was their turn to follow their own checklist and complete the first day process of growing candy cane crystals.
The project ended watching a Bill Nye Video on Chemical Reactions.
There were many vocabulary terms to learn which they will be practice using in their up coming How to Grow Candy Cane Crystal videos.
They left Friday curious about what would happen to their pipe cleaners in the borax and hot water solution by Monday.
Do taller children have bigger feet then smaller children?
First we lined up according to height which also included both teachers. We sat down in size order, took off our shoes and shared what we had observed so far.
Once all the shoes were completed each child placed their single shoe on the banner. Everyone stood behind their own shoe. The result surprised many! Several tall people including the teacher were taller than others BUT had smaller shoes!
The children began completing their experiment worksheets for analysis the next time we meet for science.
