We studied ladybugs last week and also read the Grouchy Ladybug. We had a container of live ladybugs and did experiments. We also wrote our first research paper. These are pictures of our experiment in the science lab to see if ladybugs went toward the cold or hot water. There are also pictures of our ladybug journals where we wrote our research paper and observations of the ladybugs.
We worked on maps this week. We made a map of the classroom, garden and our room. We went to the science lab and read Rosie's Walk and made a salt flour map of her walk. We also worked in groups to make Rosie's Walk.
We worked on 3D shapes this week. The children walked around the school looking for 3D shapes and also made shapes out of playdough. On Friday we used the laptops and made a chart of the shapes on pixie 2.
We did an experiment with boiled and raw eggs. The children compared and contrasted the two eggs and predicted which was raw and which was boiled. They really enjoyed cracking them and seeing if their prediction was right and seeing and feeling the eggs.
