Our Pumpkin

We did a pumpkin inquiry on Hallowe’en.  We wondered what would happen if we planted our pumpkin seeds.  Well guess what, they grew! Now we have pumpkin plants growing in our classroom.  Ameila and Chelsea documented our pumpkin on Wednesday.

What We Have Been Up To

We have been working on Science Fair projects. Many students in our class have not done Science Fair projects before so we decided we would do some experiments and enter them into the Eagle View Science Fair as a class. Last week we did 5 different experiments, went through the scientific process and Monday we will get ready to present our projects as a group. Each child will be part of a small group who will present to the judges during the Fair. I have tried to introduce various ways to record and observe.

Students have chosen, or in some cases names have been drawn, to determine which experiment they will wish to present at the Fair. I welcome you to stop by and view the projects on Tuesday afternoon or ask your child to tell you about the experiments we have completed in class.
This is a video we all created using video as a observation tool. After we recorded our observations and learn about the science of why the leakproof baggie works.

Science Fair Week

March 3-7 is Science Fair Week in our classroom. We will be doing a different experiment each day! At the end of the week we will have 5 Science Fair projects ready for the Science Fair. These will be very simple experiments which will teach how to do create a science fair project. At the end of the week students will choose which project they would like to co-present at the Eagle View Elementary School Science Fair on Tuesday, March 11, 2014.

***If your child is doing a project at home they will still participate in the class experiments but will present their personal projects at the Science Fair***

The experiments will be answering questions posed by myself and the students.  The purpose of the next 2 weeks will be to learn how to pose a scientific question, how to observe and record reactions and how to create a presentation of learning.  Wish us luck!

States of Matter



On Wednesday we learned about states of matter.  When the molecules (little things that make up things) are close together they make a solid.  When they are further apart and moving around slowly the molecules make up a liquid and when they are far apart and moving around quickly they make up a gas.

Can you tell which is which?

Can you use vegetables to dye eggs?

We ask a question and tomorrow we will find out the answer!

We were wondering if you could use natural things to dye eggs.  Yesterday we came up with some ideas about what to use to dye eggs.  Some ideas that we came up with are:

  1. blueberries
  2. tomatoes
  3.  grass

Today we boiled eggs and some vegetables to see if the veggie dye would turn the eggs colours.

Can you guess what we used?
