Science can be a lot of fun!
Students were kept busy experimenting at 3 different centres. At each, they did different things to different objects so that their characteristics changed!
At one centre, students used sandpaper to change blocks of wood from rough to smooth.
Here, students observed ice cubes, and found that if they held them in their hands, the ice changed to water – from a hard solid to wet liquid. They were excited to observe the change in the bowl when they came in from recess!
Others were challenged to change lumps of clay with their hands, and turned formless, shapeless lumps into amazing shapes.
The learning was so engaging, the students wanted to stay in for recess! 🙂
