ZOOPLANKTON PROJECT: Hatching Brine Shrimp Eggs

At the beginning of November we prepared a sea salt solution and we put two table spoons of brine shrimp cysts into it. Brine shrimps are also called artemias or sea monkeys.
The eggs hatched around 3 days later. Constant aeration was also needed. We will keep you updated about our babies!

L’HORT

Avui les Estrelles hem iniciat el Projecte de l’hort.

Hem plantat alls, bledes i escaroles.

Us deixem una petita mostra de com ha anat l’experiència!IMG_1447 IMG_1441 IMG_1440 IMG_1431 IMG_0404 IMG_0400 IMG_0399

DOES AN ORANGE FLOAT OR SINK?

Does an orange float or sink in water? We began by filling a large bowl of water and placing an orange in the water. The K4 kids discovered that the orange floats. Then we peeled the orange, removing the rind. Next we placed the unpeeled orange in the water and guess what? It started to sink!
The rind of an orange is full of tiny air pockets making it float on the surface!




HAVING FUN OBSERVING ZOOPLANKTON!

In Science we are learning that plankton can be plant-like organisms, called phytoplankton, or animal-like, called zooplankton.

Our zooplankton is quite large and we are able to observe it without magnifying glasses.

Have a look at the pictures! We are observing artemias here!

WATCHING ANAGLYPH IMAGES WITH 3D Glasses

In our Science class we have been watching anaglyph images!
We have used special red/cyan 3D glasses in order to observe different planets of our solarsystem, images of the moon and many others.
We even have watched some 3D videoclips and have taken a ride on a virtual reality roller coaster. Have a look, we have had so much fun!

It’s story time: FATHER CHRISTMAS

Today we’ve watched the story FATHER CHRISTMAS by Raymond Briggs.
We’ve joined Father Christmas getting ready for his busiest day of the year, Christmas Eve preparing
his Christmas deliveries, feeding his reindeer and finally taking flight into the snowy night.

Concave & convex in Science

In Science K4 we investigated spoons. They are like mirrors. The front of the spoon is concave and the back is convex.
We drew ourselves upside down looking at the front of the spoon. Have a look at the pics!






PRIMARY COLOUR MIXING

In K4 Science we have learnt to mix paints to get other colours.
Blue and yellow make green! How cool!
We’ve started learning how tu use a pipette, too!
Have a look.
