Fun with frozen: making ice grow

Do your kids love Elsa and "Frozen?" If so, give this science experiment a try! I have been noticing lots of fun ideas being shared by my fellow bloggers that are all related to the Walt Disney movie "Frozen." I must admit that my grandsons and I have enjoyed watching this movie at home on more

Hot ice, scientifically known as sodium acetate, is a liquid that will turn solid at the slightest provocation. Touching it with your finger or bumping it too hard will cause it to spring from a clear, water-like state into solid ice-like crystals.

Make Hot Ice From Vinegar and Baking Soda

Sodium acetate, also known as 'hot ice' is an amazing chemical you can easily prepare yourself using baking soda and vinegar.

He Huffed and He Puffed...

...can he blow the house down? Last week we focused on the classic The Three Little Pigs for our fairy tale study. We divided into groups of 3 and used a different kind of material to build a house. Then, the big bad wolf (a cleverly disguised hairdryer) came and try to blow the house down! In my head, this activity was fun, and it's nice to know that it lived up to my expectations - the kids were so into it. Each group had 5 minutes to construct a pig dream house. Materials used were sugar…

Engineering inquiry and cooperative group work - The Teacher Studio

Engineering activities in elementary school? Yes! Today we tackled day 3 of school, I wanted my students to apply some of the concepts we have been talking about–mostly about helping each other and being receptive to help. I decided to design a little engineering challenge that would require them to stick to a tight schedule, …

This week my kinders are diving into a study of buildings - primarily skyscrapers. Today I explained that skyscrapers have four main parts - the foundation, the beams (skeleton), stories, and facade. I played a few youtube videos of New York's skyline as well. Next, I gave each color family (four students in each group) cardstock and blocks to build skyscrapers. They had to have floors to their buildings. The tallest skyscraper built was 21 floors. The students realized that the stronger…
