Today we witnessed food coloring magic! Our scientist asked us what would happen if we combined food coloring and oil, then poured the mixture into water. We had a lot of thoughts and we couldn't quite remember which liquids were more dense, but we didn't expect to see fireworks! Food coloring forms bubbles in the oil. Oil is less dense, so it floats on the water. Food coloring then sinks through the oil and creates a beautiful masterpiece as it mixes with the water!
Today we started building and it was great. We went back to our plans, worked with our partners, shopped for supplies, and started creating the exhibits for our Mining Town Museum, opening March 17th and 18th. We're loving the process and learning a lot along the way.
Today we enjoyed an African drumming and movement assembly at the new Center for the Arts. First of all, the new Center is beautiful. Second, it was wonderful to start of this snowy Monday learning about a new culture, listening to beautiful drums and traditional African instruments, and moving our bodies with the beat! Check it out!
We would like to extend a huge thank you to Crested Butte, Vail Resorts, all the amazing ski instructors/coordinators, and Ms. Sandy for making Ski for PE a reality and such a huge success. Place based learning is an important part of any education, and we love that we get to incorporate skiing and ski culture into our fourth grade year and physical education.
Today we got into the Valentine's spirit. Check out our fine motor skills with these mirror images!
