Forest Life!

We are exploring the forest life in Vermont.  We are looking at the types of trees, life cycle of a tree, forest life and sustainability.  These are the trees we created.  We choose which scientific words we wanted to label our drawings with.  These can also be found on Smithsonian at ePals.  We earn a special Smithsonian star every time we share something we created about the natural world.

Science Journals

Today we each received our very own science journal! Two of the children went to garden club and brought back some "Hops".  The children shared what they learned about this plant with us.  Then we all used pencils and colored pencils to create a scientific drawing of the Hops.  We talked a lot about how scientists draw, label, and date their thinking when using a journal.  Wonderful journal work!

Dr. Seuss and Oobleck!

video


This morning Ms. Molly and Ms. Emily read a wonderful Dr. Seuss story to us.  Afterwards we were able to create a new substance called; "Oobleck".  We made predictions about what we thought might happen when we added all the ingredients together.  We read some words that describe how the Oobleck might feel and then we conducted the experiment.  What fun!  We were even able to take some home today to share with our families!
