This was our second formal gathering, but I'm counting it as the third since I posted about our visit to the one-room schoolhouse. We were covering Chapters 5-8 (and one lesson from 9). The kids first talked about pollution and buffers. They learned about the great job that plants do in protecting our environment and of course talked about helping to take good care of it themselves.
Each child was given a paper with a different chemical symbol on it.
The ties on the sides of the "cells" could be used to join the cells together.
What a great way to experience science! I love co-op and am thankful for the opportunity to be in one. Thanks Vickie and Vivian for a wonderful day! More soon on our next co-op adventure!
