An Explosion of Colour!

Just when you thought Grade 1 couldn't get any messier, we began a Science unit all about colour!

Sometimes class is SO much fun, the kids don't even know how much they're learning! Using a paper plate, we blobbed two primary colours on top, put a paper clip on, and using a magnet below were able to move the paper clip to mix our colours!

After colour mixing, we posted what we learned about "primary" and "secondary" colours!

This little tune had us all jammin' to some sweet beats...

Then we tackled some hefty vocabulary and examined many items to see if they are transparent (see through) or opaque (not see through). 

Check out all the samples!

And that was just the tip of the iceberg! So many more messy, hands on experiments to come! Get the wet wipes, here we come!
