December 8, 2017- STEAM Friday

The children used technology and blocks to explore and build famous structures from around the world!  They worked in small groups to look at pictures and videos online of the Great Wall of China and the Eiffel Tower and then collaborated on the process of building the structures.


Today in Art, the children talked about surface tension in kid friendly terms with Mr. T. Students learned about how materials like chalk would interact with water in both whole and crushed form, and why a whole piece of chalk would sink, while chalk powder would float.
We added crushed chalk to water and dipped drawing paper inside to create a cool effect on the paper. Next week when the papers are dry, we will be drawing on them with black marker.
