In our Science work this term we've been thinking about how things move - objects, animals and people. Here's a peek at some of the activities we worked on!
Aren't lessons more fun when they are outside? We took our Science scrapbooks and pencils to the undercover play area (no reason, just for a change of scenery!), along with a box of objects - things like a toy car, a block of wood, a ball, a teddy bear and a barrel shaped container. We then put them to the test - could they be moved by pushing, pulling, hitting or blowing? My kidlets had lots of fun with this activity, they made predictions and were surprised by some of the results. We recorded our findings, took turns and discussed what was happening each time. Success!
|Sorry Teddy, she's just so pushy!|
|No surprises when this huge block didn't move with breath power!|
|This toy didn't move after one kidlet blew on it, but everyone was convinced that it would move if a team combined their breath! I didn't think it would, but let them try. I had to eat my words when this group tipped it over! :)|
|Run, walk, climb, slide, swim, fly, waddle, jump.|
|Cutest thing ever - the 'wiggle' group. :)|
|This clever cat figured out that a bluebottle didn't really fit into the 'swim' group, and wanted to know if it could be by itself in a group called 'float'. You got it, buddy!|
|Scooting down the hill.|
|One of the Amazing Marble Mazes!|
Well folks, that's all she wrote! I hope this might have given you a few ideas if you've got this topic on your Science radar. Have a wonderful week. :)
