Pre-K 3.5-4 Year Olds with Mrs. Donavan
Happy Wednesday!! As a class we try to do a simple science projects each Wednesday, with different circumstances I thought how fun it would be for Madison and Parker to do it and share it with our OLM families! This science project is called Lava Lamp.
We filled the three glass jars with water (about 1 cup) and then filled them again with vegetable oil (about 2 cups). From there we placed in food coloring and about a half of a piece of the alka seltzer tablet.
Why this works! The water and oil do not mix and the oil doesn’t change color because the food coloring is water soluble. The Alka Seltzer reacts with the water to make bubbles of carbon dioxide. The bubbles attach themselves to the blobs of colored water and bring them to the top of the glass. When the bubbles pop the blobs of colored water fall back to the bottom of the glass.
This was an extremely easy science experiment but so fun! I would love to hear comments below on what the children thought why there was a reaction!
Everyone should be receiving updated emails with the blog updates as well as an invite to GetEpic. We are still working out a couple kinks and trying to see what works best for everyone. I am enjoying GetEpic and would love to keep seeing your child's projects with the assignments I am including. If you are not receiving any emails or an invite to GetEpic please let me know right away!
Tomorrow we will be celebrating Saint Joseph and what better way to celebrate and learn about a Saint than food? Saint celebrations and feast days are marked with a special dish, either from the saint’s country of origin or that share some connection to the saint’s life. For Saint Joseph’s feast day, it’s traditional to serve Italian dishes. You’ll find more traditional dishes for St Joseph’s day, including pasta dishes, and fig cookies. Please share with any fun traditional dishes you may do for St. Joseph.
I've attached a coloring page if you would like to color and share with us! Please keeping saying your prayers, working on your letters Rr, Yy. Please keep an eye out for constant emails.
Blessings to you all,
