Scientific Process with Observation & Inferences: Elephant toothpaste
Our students got an intro on the scientific process and a hands on experiment with chemical reactions. The question we asked ourselves was "What would happen if we mixed all the materials provided (dish soap, carbon dioxide, food coloring, and warm water?)" Seeing their faces was priceless!
Gravity Science Experiment: Falling Objects
Our kiddos did a gravity experiment with Miss Carey on which paper would hit the ground first if we released it at the same rate and height? Would it be a crumpled paper or a flat piece of paper? Our students have found that a crumpled paper hit the ground faster because the flat paper is flexible and was slowed down by air resistance which we will get more into in class.
