This week we wrapped up our Water unit with the read aloud The Pigeon Needs a Bath by Mo Willems and learned how important water is for all living things including animals and plants.
In the Science Center, the children observed how colored water travels up the stems of celery to show how plants drink water up their stem.
Following on from our discovery that salt mixed (dissolved) into water, we also tried mixing water with rice, sugar, and oil. We observed that only the sugar dissolved.
We also discussed the changes in Spring as our class bears came out of hibernation.
Next week we will begin our next unit on Plants.
