Electrons

Math Art

Today, we made spirolateral math art. I can’t quite put into words what that means, but find an Electron and they should be able to show you! We used multiplication, skip counting, graphing and patterning in our art.

Buttermilk

For Science, the electrons made some delicious butter. They experimented with adding salt or sugar and even made some whipped cream. We briefly talked about how Heavy whipping cream is made and how the agitation starts to separate the fat and it clumps together. Which then leaves you with butter and buttermilk.

Symmetry

We read the book “Seeing Symmetry” to complement our work from the previous week. Since the book mentioned snow flakes, we did a science experiment with baking soda and hair conditioner to make snow. The Electrons were challenged to research at home to figure out why the ingredients become cold when they are combined.

Winter

Today we started our winter exploration with a group project of a winter-themed collage. We created snowflakes, snowman, winter animals and other cool items. We will continue our project next week.

Play- dough

The Electrons worked hard in the kitchen to make play dough for the youngest co-op kids to use during art class. Before heading to the kitchen, we made some educated guesses about the ingredients in play dough. We had some expected suggestions (flour, salt, water) and some more interestingly far-fetched (radioactive chemicals, explosives). There was […]

Symmetry

This week, we discussed lines of symmetry and then created our own symmetrical drawings. After we got our drawing muscles warmed up, we started self-portraits created on drawing paper using a photo of half of our face and reflecting that half over the line of symmetry to create our portraits.

Slime!

Today we made basic slime with glue, Tide and food dye. Kids experimented with activating the slime while making sure it is not over-activated. We had a lot of messy fun. We will continue with more slime this week!

Wreaths

Today we started working on a wreath project, Kids did wonderful job threading mesh into a wreath form, we even had one starwars themed wreath. We continued working on our beaded projects from last week.

Cardboard

This week we created door hangers with our name from card board and tissue papers. Some kids created cardboard projects.

Fall

This week we created beaded pipe cleaner – inidian corn and other fall themed creations. We will continue to work on beaded pipe cleaner projects next week. We were sad to miss our electrons friends that were sick and we hope they feel better soon. Looking forward to meeting all electrons back next week in […]
