Friends use their five (well...four) senses to explore baking soda, vinegar and food coloring today during morning free choice.
We use our sense of hearing, smell, sight and touch to figure out the reaction between the baking soda and vinegar. "Yuck! That stuff stinks!" says Hendric. "Hey, I hear it sizzle," says Aaron. Colton says, "It looks like a bubbling volcano." Great observations, Discoverers!
We work with Oobleck (cornstarch and water) to utilize our sense of touch. We observe that sometimes the mixture feels soft like a liquid and sometimes it feels hard like a solid. Very interesting!
Thomas uses our alphabet stones during quiet choices. He spells out both his first and last name. Way to go, Thomas!
Before we head out for recess, we take a look at our new Science Spin magazine. How perfect that it is all about the Five Senses! Ask your child what he/she learned from our activity today.
Too cute not to share! Colton and Hendric hanging out during recess :)
