Entreprenuership

This week in Sprout, the kids were inspired by other kid entrepreneurs.  Then they set off to write their own business plans.  Watch out for future art sales, robots, cleaning kids, petrologists, authors, and ice cream stands!

Bottle Rockets

Learning about chemical reactions is always at the top of our student requests!  We learned about ratios too as we mixed vinegar and baking soda together to see what would be the most explosive.

No pictures this week:( We were to hands on, LOL!

 

Aboriginal Art

The Indigenous people of Australia used this beautiful art form to express their stories and traditions.  See how our Sprout kids used vivid colors and told their own stories modeling the Aborigine people.

Static Electricity

We’ve all felt a little shock happen, and have seen our hair stick up after sliding down a slide, but did you ever stop to think about what is static electricity?  Our Sprout kiddos explored that this week!

Perspective

 

After taking a look at a few images and hearing the same story from different points of view, the Sprout kids took a look at an image of a forest and drew from their perspective what they would do if they were in that picture.

 

Finger knitting

Learning new hobbies is a great way to expand a gifted student’s mind. Finger knitting is simple, incorporates fine motor control, inspires creativity, and can be relaxing!

Origami

The art of Origami is intriguing and challenging.  To push some of our kiddos out of their comfort zone and to enhance fine motor control, we made a few simple and then complex origami pieces.
