This week in grade 2 we continued to investigate air!
We practiced our "Monsieur le vent!" poem.
We did an experiment with air. I gave them a bucket of small items and two rulers. In small groups, they put the rulers on their desks and guessed how many breaths it would take to blow an item from one ruler to the other. They found it really fun! We worked on making predictions, and we talked about their observations. What did they notice about the objects? Which objects were easier to move? Which ones took the most breaths?
Then we made wind snakes! They decorated the spirals, and then cut them out and tied ribbon around the inside tip. Then we went outside and explored what happened with the wind. We also made our own wind by running with the wind snakes!
