As a registered WE School, we do an annual Water Walk in support of providing clean water for those living in rural areas of our sponsor country, Kenya. This year, our preschool was able to raise $1684, providing clean water for an entire village ($1250) plus 17 other people ($25/pp) with clean water for life. This allows the children in these villages to attend school instead of making several trips back and forth to carry water home for their families. Thank you to all of those who contributed!
We learned lots about fire safety while having fun thanks to our preschool parent firefighters that put together this lovely event for us!
When the weather doesn’t cooperate, we spend our days figuring out how things work, such as:
-why ducks don’t get wet as they swim across ponds
-how heavy air is
-why a candle loses its flame when we cover it with a jar
-how many drops of water we are able to put on a quarter
-how to place a cup containing a piece of paper into water and keep the paper dry
The end of nutrition period ended with some marshmallow fun!
We finished our nutrition course here at the preschool with our friend Freddie Fruits and Vegetables. We did this in various ways, such as making art with fruits & veggies, cooking applesauce, making carrots and lemon, eating some lemons (then turning them into lemonade for improved taste!), and finally planting some veggies in the garden that we will check on after Spring Break!
Making ice cream, separating egg yolks from whites with a water bottle, switching from liquid to solid (egg whites to whipped cream), all wonderful kitchen science related learning activities!
