Wow! It feels like the last blog was a lifetime ago. To try and catch you up, here’s a quick recap of the last week!
Oceans in a Jar
On Wednesday, we took time to create our own oceans in a bottle. Our intention with this exploration was to explore the colors and textures of the sea. In order to do so, we dissolved tissue paper in water and discussed what (if anything) happened to the water.
At the end of the exploration we had seven, unique oceans each featuring a variety of coral, seaweed and water colors. When we returned from the weekend, we took time to observe our ocean jars after the time away.
Elena: Is there a way we could turn this ice water into sea water
George: Let it melt?
CC: We could add blue water to it when it melts
Lochie: Hey, I have a great idea! We could melt this and then put our other waters that have colors in them into it.
Taking CC’s advice we sprayed blue and green watercolor paint on our iceberg and we’ve enjoyed watching it melt over these last two days. (Brigitte puts it in the freezer when the children go home for the day to make the exploration last!)
Big thanks to Elle’s grandparents for joining us as the mystery readers today!
