Science is an indispensable part of family education. Teachers should design and organize a serious of activities and the family should make full use of the science resources to cultivate children’s scientific quality. We were honored to invite Jimmy’s mother to the kindergarten and lead the children to attend a scientific experiment.
Children learn some basic features of their own hair in the subject named “This is me” by observing, touching, drawing and comparing. But did you know that there is a secret in magical hair ?
“How does hair drink water? It has no mouth.”
First the teacher poured the water into a cup and the children counted from 1 to 10. When the cup was tipped upside down we were surprised to see that the water had disappeared. “The hair drank the water.”
So what is the taste of dry ice? “I want to have a try.”
Ostensibly, the dry ice is similar to the ice we know in our daily life. But they are different in essence. The dry ice is composed of carbon dioxide. When it melts at normal temperature, it can be changed into the carbon dioxide gas. The air is still very dry. That is the reason why we call it dry ice. However when the ice melts, it changes into water.
There were three colorful bottles. The children wondered whether the teacher can grow mushrooms in them.
The teacher asked the children to get some soap water and then put their hands on the bottle. They picked a lot of mushrooms carefully.
The teacher poured the hot water into the basket filled with dry ice. The thick white clouds came out quickly and soon the children were surrounded by the clouds. They used their feet to step on it, hold it with their hands and smell it with their nose. They really enjoyed themselves.
In recently years, the exploration of science education has been a hot topic. How to add interesting experiments to children’s education is always an important issue. We made full use of the things and materials around us in these activities for children to experience the mystery of the world, which provided chances to gain direct experience to learn about the world. Children explore the world and experience the mystery of science. "E" stands for "Exploration" in Angel, and embraces our educational philosophy.
