Ryleigh's Wonder question...Can you make art our of Skittles??
Well we found out!! It was really hard not to eat the Skittles, but we did it! And were able to make some amazing art. What happens to the color on the skittles when it is put in water? Well it is made of sugar, so it dissolves!! The effect is awesome!!
Happy Earth Day. This week we are working on lots of fun Earth activities, We are writing a letter to the Earth about how we will help take care of it. We did some Earth art and we went out and collected trash around our campus.
OUR Earth ART!
Not only did we collect trash, but we also collected, nature so we could do an Earth Art Activity!! They turn out great!
Today we did some problem solving math. Miss Jen brought a bag of big marshmallows...first we had to guess how many were in the bag... we made and estimate, then thought of a strategy that would be efficient in counting them. We found that there was 55 in the bag. Counting by 10's was the most popular way to figure out how many.
Then the challenge...If there are 55 marshmallows? Then how many do we each get? There was some amazing work done! We drew pictures to help us and many of us came up with successful strategies. Some of our strategies worked and some didn't!! But isn't that what learning is!!
In the end the kids each got 3 marshmallows and Miss Jen got 7!
