Room 5 is getting all mixed up this week in our new science station!
During our morning curriculum we’ve taken over our main table with science experiments. Multi-colored test tubes offer an exciting new vehicle for combining reactionary ingredients like baking soda and vinegar to make bubbly explosions right before our eyes. The children are learning about cause and effect as they carefully measure out varying amounts of each substance into their tubes. While they work on their fine motor skills using our 2-year-old friendly eye-droppers and measuring spoons, they are also observing and reporting the outcome of each “trial” in their work stations!
As we add colored vinegar to the experience we will learn about color blending, and continue to discuss more/less, full/empty and other measurable opposites in this messy and thrilling project!
