Wow! Primary science students were very busy during the month of April. After wrapping up a unit on simple machines, all classes have been dipping their hands into some fun outdoor experiments. Students experimented by mixing together three different solutions to test which one created the best, longest lasting bubbles. All solutions worked, and the kids had a blast testing them out. In learning about polymers, students watched a chemical reaction occur before their eyes when they dipped a Styrofoam cup into acetone. Their cups melted into a pliable, stretchy and gooey substance. To wrap up the month, we continued talking about polymers by creating a form of it using milk and vinegar.
We will wrap up the year with some fun hands-on activities, games, and field day! It has been such a fun year and a true joy and pleasure teaching your children. Enjoy Summer!
