Opening wide for a little something sweet.
This quarter Kindergarten is learning more about the 5 senses! This week we were discovering more about the sense of taste. 5 different kids (everyone got a chance) came up and were blind folded. They had to open their mouth up like a little bird to get ready to taste something either Salty, Sweet or (wait for it......) SOUR! Some of our brave friends were subjected to a small piece of lemon to experience sour. Then everyone was able to taste some. What brave folks! After tasting we then brainstormed other things that tasted sweet, salty and sour.
Today and the next week or so, the 3rd grade classes are watching me take apart a chicken. Not to make soup, but to see how the muscles, joints, bones, tendons, ligaments, and cartilage all work together. Mrs. Brown's class was the first to experience this today! They did a great job. Here are some of the comments that I heard.
"It was awesome and at the sametime gross" - Miles "This was disgusting and really cool!" - Parker "I thought digging inside the bones was really cool." - Sam and from someone in the peanut gallery, "I will never look at chicken the same way again!"
Here is someone crossing off our check list of things we wanted to see!
Is that a ball and socket joint we are seeing?
I decided that the old Wiki was hard to navigate/create. So, introducing the new website. This will allow me to post videos of lessons, pictures and stories of what has occured in the Brooks Science Lab. I will also add new facts to the Crazy/Weird/Fun Facts page. On the grade level pages there are websites that maybe used in class, as well as videos. Enjoy!
