Week 5 Discovery Time

One day this week Samuel came to me and said, "The birds keep coming on to the deck."  I explained to him that the birds were actually doing us a favour and eating up all the crumbs that are left from the children's morning tea. " But!"  he said, "I have to sit on the bird poop!"
Well fair enough what could we do about it then?
"We could make a scarecrow"
So hence one of our Discovery activities today was to make a scarecrow for the deck.
We also had bubble blowing,  pretend baking,  construction with boxes, and domino tracks.
We are learning how to be creative...
(I am trying out a new slide show maker)

Watching an Experiment

This morning we were invited into Room 2 to watch Bella's experiment.
She was to make elephant toothpaste....
It looked pretty amazing. We especially liked the green food colouring you added.
Thanks Bella for inviting us in to watch.
