Today we explored with light and shadow. Oliver noticed that when we opened the blinds in the classroom, light from the window will come in and we couldn’t see the light of the flash light.
Oliver: There’s to much light coming in trought the window.”

Today we made Magic Lava, the ingredients were Red cabbage juice powder, citric acid, baking soda, vegetable oil and water. They children noticed that the oil floats on top of the water, I tould them that reason why that happens is because the water is more dense than the oil. Also when we added the citric acid powder it sank to the bottom because it's more dense than both ol and water. When the baking soda joined the citric acid in the bottom it caused a bubbling chemical reaction. The children also noticed that when we first started with the red cabbage it was red and when we added it to the solution it turned blue. It became a color changing bubbling potion.

Today Ivy walks in the door and says “Its my brother’s Birhtday.” I asked her if she wanted to make a present for him and she said “yes.” What are we going to do? She said “a birthday card.” Ivy also finished her snake habitat today and decided to give it to her brother because he loves snakes.
