We are learning about the properties of air.
Think, Wonder, Discover
To get started, we used a “thinking routine” to share our current ideas about air.
Each student described their thinking about “AIR” and I recorded their responses. (THINK)
Next, I recorded some of their questions. (WONDER)
We also talked about different ways of learning about science:
We can learn by doing experiments.
We can learn by watching a video.
We can learn by reading a book.
We can learn by talking to others about what we’ve observed.
We can learn by visiting a museum.
I demonstrated a really fascinating experiment for the class, which prompted a great discussion and more questions for our chart about air.
As we were reading a book about air, there was an experiment included in the book. So… we tried it.
Ask your child to explain how to put a napkin into a cup and then put it into a larger container filled with water, and keep the napkin dry! It was really cool.
We will continue to add ideas & thinking to our charts, including what we’ve observed. (DISCOVER)
