It is only the second week of school and the children are comfortable in the classroom, working together, and enjoying each other’s company. This week we launched our first science topic, weather. Kids used the first step of the Scientific Method, Observation, to discover the role the sun has on different surfaces of the earth. Kids became scientist and used their sense of touch to explore and compare different surfaces around the playground; grass, blacktop, metal bars, etc. We then used a globe to discuss and form questions about “how the sun affects land versus ocean”. We then set up an experiment to test our hypothesis! The kids are loving science!
