Last week, my kiddos were all about some science! We began our first little mini unit on the scientific method, but first we had to discuss some things to look forward to in science!
We began our science instruction with a fun little thinking/writing/making craftivity. When I saw Amy Lemon’s mathematicians, (isn’t she the best?!?) I just couldn’t resist. They really didn’t fit into my math instruction, so what better way to include these cute little dudes than by turning them into mad scientists?!
After we created a list of scientific words and actions that we would need to transform into a scientist, the kiddos wrote about what they hope to learn this year during our science studies!
After our brains were focused on all things science, we were ready to set up our notebooks for the year! Once again, we turned to good ol’ Mod Podge! Yep…love this stuff!
I introduced the tools that we would be responsible for using/knowing this year in 3rd grade. Then, we completed a little match and design on our science notebook covers!
Finally, we ended the week working our way through the scientific method. Thanks to Ginger, my kiddos fell completely in love with the Boat Afloat experiment!
I have to say…they made some pretty amazing boats! I think I’ve got some future scientists/engineers on my hands!
Hope y’all are having a great week!
