We wrote a secret message for our friends from a different class with candles, and they can discover our message by painting over it with water colours!
An an extension of our feather experiment, we added colour droplets first to water, and it immediately changed colour to match the added drops. Then, the same procedure was done in oil, and the colours remained in the form that they were added. The children were incredibly engaged in this activity, it was so great to see!
The oil in their feathers resists water, allowing for it to just trickle off when they are finished swimming!
The start of school year excitement is in full swing, especially in the block building area. One of the children at Burke Mountain Preschool built a very special window, proudly showing it off to his classmates!
These two have become fast friends and have already developed such a special bond!
