1F students had an opportunity today to learn about what it takes to run a daycare. We talked about all of the different things that make a child's experience at daycare a positive one. Then we did a science experiment together and were given some levelled books to add to our library. Students were also given a sample of the mysterious Goopy Goo to take home. What an exciting way to begin our day. Many thanks for all of our goodies today !
This is the recipe for Goopy Goo if you would like to try it at home.
Begin with 4 teaspoons of Borax.
Mix 1 cup of hot water and leave this in a separate container.
In a different container pour one cup of white glue and mix it with one cup of water.
Then pour the glue solution into the Borax solution and observe what happens.
Do not mix it but just swish it around in the bowl.
Yank it out and place on cookie sheet. There will be some excess liquid.
The video below highlights the fun we had today.
