This week in KG-1
This week we were SCIENTIST as we completed many science activities as we finished our UOI into ‘How the World Works’ using our five senses. We read the story ‘Ava Twist the Scientist’ as we talked about asking and answering questions with Why, How and What.
Experiment 1 – Liquids and Solids
In pairs the children predicted what they thought would happen to different objects and recorded them on sheets
We put them outside
We investigated what happened to our object
We drew our findings and described what happened to the ones that changed.
Experiment 2 – We made slime
The children enjoyed working in pairs mixing the ingredients together and observing what happened when they mixed the two mixtures together.
Here is the experiment if you would like to make it at home!
Experiment 3 – Candy Observation
In centre this week
The children tasted different foods and used describing words such as bitter, salty, sweet and sour; with different materials they created something to make a car go faster; fished for numbers and practised writing what they found; sorted fish by color and made a graph of the fish colours; smelt different containers and guessed which fruit scent was inside; rolled a dice, identified the letter and sound and drew a picture an object that starts with that letter; laced pasta and used our five senses to identify what was inside jar #1 and jar #2
This week we begun outdoor centers where the children worked at different activities in our outside enviroment. Ask your child what they did. Photo’s on Flikr
Well done to this weeks Rockstar Recess – Daniel for being responsible in the classroom and to Sara for being a risk-taker.
Next Week in KG-1
We will begin our new unit of inquiry into ‘Sharing the Planet’ we will be going on a field trip to Uptown Mirdif Park. On Sunday we are trialling Free Flow Free Inquiry where the children will be able to visit a range of classrooms during our free inquiry.
