I'd like to send out a pouring THANK-YOU to Jennifer Connolly for spear-heading this project and to Chris Lynch for helping out along the way. The kids also took video and pictures during the weeks it took to paint the rain barrel and you can see the process here:
Guest writer Ms. Heike here! As you may have heard, we have begun our new science unit about liquids and solids. We have already learned so much! We began by using some of our senses, such as touch and smell, to explore water, oil, and syrup. Through our exploration we have discovered what is the same about all liquids and we are now working on discovering what is different about them. It has been so interesting (and a bit messy!) to see how different liquids act when they are mixed together.
We are also building an interesting collection of mystery liquids that has piqued our curiosity and will take some deep thinking to figure out. We will be exploring our mystery liquids throughout the unit so you can still send them in if you haven't already.
