Term 3 Week 1 Day 1 2012 proved to be rather trying. To get the kids motivated was quite tricky, but with a few bickers and tanties we got there in the end.
Today we thoguht we would show you some of the more enjoyable activities we did today.
Connor did a great experiment project  to see how different substances change the time it took to dissolve an alka seltzer. He is still waiting for the oil to dissolve it...He guessed that the oil placed a barrier around the tab and that it may never dissolve.

Maddie and Jacob did some visual arts. Last term they drew some trees out at a local park. Today they used watercolours and acrylics and tree branches to paint a picture of a sunrise in our front yard. A brayer for the suburbia part.
Here is the photo...
