Weekly News: Recap and Preview

May 14, 2021

Class: MF – Caterpillars

Recent News:

· BOOKS – We read No Ordinary Fish by Anne Lawrence and heard some fascinating facts about sharks.

· MUSIC – We danced to “The Pirate Song” by Tom Hunter and had a fun Music Class with Ms. Ruth.

· ART – We painted on bubble wrap then transferred the design onto paper and played with shaving cream.

· SCIENCE – We learned how sharks and fish are buoyant and why they do not just stay on the bottom of the ocean. Fish have swim bladders that have gas inside and sharks have very oily livers to help them float. We tested this by putting a water bottle with no air bubbles in a tub of water and it sank. Then we put a bottle of water with an air bubble in it and a bottle filled with vegetable oil and no air bubble and saw how they floated in the tub.

· ACTIVITIES – We made predictions, tested, and sorted different items into sink and float categories.
