Science and Art!

Today we looked at a few art paintings. Scholars applied what they knew about weather to make observations about the weather in a painting. They wrote their observations on post-it notes. I read them and we discussed what we saw. Great job scholars!

It's Raining, It's Pouring

It was raining in 3A! We used water, shaving cream, and food coloring in the precipitation experiment. The shaving cream represented clouds and the food coloring made the clouds heavy enough to make it rain. We were so excited when the food coloring hit the water!

Power Towers

Scholars practiced their addition facts using plastic cups! If they correctly solved the equation, they could stack their cups to build a tower. So much fun!
