Each week in Kindergarten, two children have the opportunity to be Scientist for the Day! After preparing at home, the children bring their equipment to school, put the lab coat on and share their experiment and research with the class. We have learned so much from our classmates! Some of the experiments that we have enjoyed:
• oil and water fireworks • float or sink? • density • transfer of energy • erupting volcanoes • Ooblek • jumping pepper
• lava lamps with alka seltzer (seen in photo) • static electricity • circuits • growing our own crystals
Here’s what some of the Kinders have to say about Scientist for the Day:
They were just like a real Scientist!
Calling up classmates to help was fun!
Spectacular and wonderful!
They were surprising!
