Science Fair

During the Science Fair, which took place on 13th May, students of grades 6 and 7 of primary school demonstrated  a number of physical and chemical experiments for their younger schoolmates. Our youngest students learned about condensation, sublimation and friction. They found out how to build a battery with a few lemons. They are now able to explain why the solutions in the “rainbow experiment” do not mix.
The main purpose of organizing this type of event is to arouse curiosity and support independent learning about the world.

Mr. Bucket

The father of two students of our school is a professional actor in the company: 

Last Wednesday we enjoyed a lot with his performance in our school. It all starts in a very simple way... Let me introduce you to Mr. Bucket... He seems very nice, but there is a problem, he refuses to act!




Our narrator, wants to tell us a story he has read, The Wizar of Oz. As Mr. Bucket does not want to act, he calls out for volunteer... No problem! Here they are:


Little by little, with the help of a few disguises that come out from Mr Bucket,  he turns children into actors!



Have a look at Aunty Emma!



He tells the students what they have to say and how they have to say it. 
Wonderful experience both for the "actors" and the audience.

I have just downloaded a set of Lego Challenge Card in the following link: 






This giant collection of LEGO challenge cards is a simple prep, fun way to sneak some STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) learning into the day. With cards that range from easy to difficult, little engineers will love tackling the designs. Grab your set below and add them to a classroom center, engineering activity, homeschool lesson, or free play. There are so many ways to use these cards!

Groups

Today, in Social Sciences class, with my second grade students, we have reflected on the groups to which we belong... We already belong to some of them when we are born. We join others...









Fold the paper



I share a very easy activity...
Students fold a paper in half. One of them draws a body and gives the paper to the partner to draw the head (without seeing the body). The results are very funny and generate a lot of expectation in children. 



A playful approach....
