We spent time learning about primary colors, and the kids were challenged to find out what happens when artists mix different colors together. They LOVED it. Pretty much every one of them figured out how to mix the colors and what combinations created which new colors. What a fun afternoon of exploration!
The kids also got the chance to experiment with and learn about the water cycle. We spent time on evaporation last week, and I showed them a video this week of my brother back in Wisconsin. He threw up a boiling cup of water into -25 degree (-50 with windchill) air, and the water immediately evaporated. Then we had the chance to explore the rest of the water cycle--condensation, precipitation, and collection (or accumulation). Students put water through a sponge (the cloud) with an eyedropper and were able to feel how heavy the sponge got before water started to "precipitate" through down to the ground. It was messy, educational, and they loved it!
Speaking of precipitation--be prepared with the snowstorm that's coming our way, and stay safe! See y'all next week!
