1.Row Row Row your boat.We tried to rhyme with boat and talked about the "oat" family.Then I asked what does the boat look like?What color is it? Who was inside? Where is it going? A great story took shape! My daughter said it was going to the other side of the lake.It is a great way to spell and practice writing.
When we got their we got chocolate ice cream.Then we went home.
My toddler glued scraps to make his boat.He said the boat was going to jail.
2.We went outside to look for rocks.It is finally starting to feel like Spring.
3.Will it float or sink?Will a rock sink or float?
After that experiment take 2 sheets of aluminum foil and 2 pennies.1.Put one penny in aluminum and crumple into a ball.
2.Lay other penny flat on sheet of aluminum.
Good vocabulary for older kids like aluminium, and displacement.The balled up foil with the penny sank.The flat sheet floated.
