The children are in the midst of making scientific discoveries. They are learning about how air moves things. This past week, the children watched as Laura demonstrated how water will stay in an air-tight bottle that has a hole in it. When Laura opened the cap, the water poured out. The children are making pinwheels that demonstrate this concept.
They have also been making predictions and doing experiments with color. This week, they will also make predictions about how much things weigh.
Our next unit is the study of Picasso and other artists. The children will look at Picasso's simple line drawings and will make their own ones inspired by what they see.
Some of our older students began making puppets when we were learning about Africa. I will work with them to create an African-themed story for a puppet show.
