The Kinder scientists went to the science lab and carried out an experiment to rescue a water animal from an oil spill. The children tested a variety of materials to get the oil out of the water. They discovered that a sponge, spoon and the paper towel were the best to remove the oil. The children recorded their observations and discussed their conclusions.
It was a great way for the children to FIND OUT just how difficult it is to remove oil from water and how real animals might feel if they had to swim in it. As you can see by the children’s faces they were concentrating very hard on the task and took it all very seriously. Be sure to ask them about what they observed and found out!
Sueneta says that she hopes we are all having a great time and that Aarika is missing her teachers and friends very much. They have been very, very, busy with getting settled. Their home is done and schools shortlisted. Aarika’s new schools will start in the 1st week of June and the baby is due in 1st or 2nd week of June so nearly there and exhausted !
It was lovely hear from them and we know you join us in wishing them a warm hello back!
