We just finished our Science Week, which is week 8! Only 2 more weeks to go. We have been studying astronomy! Some of the most interesting celestial objects that captured our attention were nebulas, stars, star systems, planets, galaxies and black holes. We even learned about the different parts of the galaxy and had so many questions about what's out there. Are we really alone in this universe? Are there aliens out there? Would we be aliens to them?
After watching fascinating short films and looking at NASA photos we painted our own versions of celestial objects. We have a gallery of our artwork by the front door. Please stop by to admire.
We also made slime and more slime, built a solar motor and a solar boat, both of which worked in the sun! The children are still working on the solar robot as it proved to be a more challenging project than we thought.
Did you know that we also have been learning cursive in the summer afternoons? Here is an interesting article about the benefits of cursive and handwriting:
We are growing lady bugs and have been observing this metamorphosis in our classroom. It looks like the they are about to turn into pupa! Let's see what happens next.
Children are welcome to bring water squirt bottles to school on Fridays. We have a lot of fun playing with water and mud!
Next week is: Theater and Face Painting!
