It was Wacky Wednesday in our neck of the woods and we did science all day long. Today was our first day of the FOSS kit Wood and Trees. I love this one! It really sparks our curiosity, gets us thinking about the materials we use to build things, and brings our year round investigation of life cycles to a close.
Here are a few highlights:
|We used droppers to test each sample of wood.|
|Students noticed some soaked up the water and some did not.|
|We used that information to make predictions on whether our samples would float or sink.|
|We added weights to see if we could get them to sink.|
We then compared the number of weights it took to sink each sample.
Last little bit that worked well today......Volunteer gifts. I was in charge of making the thank you gifts for our school wide volunteer thank you party. We needed 75! I made a quick freebie out of these cute little tags in case you need something for the end of the year. Here you go!
