After learning about household products and their chemical reactions, the Sprout kids set off to make a non-newtonian fluid and then experimented with their own concoctions including slime, balloon “explosions”, an oozing fluffy potion nicknamed “elephant toothpaste” and much more.
What a great way to learn about Newton’s third law of motion, momentum, and pressure then through a explosive project on bottle rockets! By placing the right ratio of baking soda and vinegar inside a plastic bottle and then corking it and watching the chemical reaction take place was amazing fun!
Our Star Wars theme was a great chance for the kiddos to work as a team – collaborate and communicate!
We began our week with a scavenger hunt outside. Then the kids made their own scavenger hunts, leading into day two! First they picked a theme, next they brainstormed possible answers to go with the theme, and finally they made puzzles, riddles, codes, mazes, word scrambles and so much more! Each kiddo had 4-7 items to decipher! It has been a great adventure.
Fun start to our second week of sprout summer camp in Lincoln Square! We learned about Morse code and hieroglyphs. Then each camper made their own secret code. The older group made a scavenger hunt around the building while the younger group finished their codes. Then they went on the scavenger hunt!
