After a discussion on aerodynamics and circular motion, the Sprout kids made origami boomerangs! Really hard work and so worth the end result.
The project was so hands on we didn’t grab our cameras to take pictures! Thank you to Red Ted Art for your awesome step by step directions.
If you tried some interesting paper fliers please share with us in the comments.
We were able to grab our cameras today! St. Matthias Sprout & Roycemore Sprout persevered with this complex origami fold. Lots of fun!!!
After looking at a timeline of how political parties came about, the Sprout kiddos talked about some important platforms and looked at some political posters. Then they created their own political poster outlining what their party stood for. They were able to create their own party name or create a poster for an existing political party.
After talking about the properties of slime we created our own ooey-gooey substances! Lots of spooky talk today!
Because of the incredible mess, there’s not so many pictures! But I am sure you all saw the finished products:)
It was a fascinating class! The kids began by collecting leaves both green and colored to see if we could extract the colors out of them. While we waited the Sprout kids made leaf art based on the images from the book, “Look What I Did with a Leaf.”
The kids did a super job when making their own version of Yaacov Agam’s kinetic art forms come to life! Take a look at the great work they did:
After talking about renewable energy and hydropower in particular the Sprout kids made their own simple machine using water to pull up small objects.
Some of the kids were asking to see some videos of hydropower and how it works, please take a look at these videos:
The Three Gorges Dam
We were so busy working with the kiddos, we ran out of time for pictures:( wah wah! If you took any at home, please forward them to me!!!
