Alpine Academy: Science
Dancing Corn Kernel
The children loved watching the corn kernel hop up and down in the jar. They combined vinegar and baking soda for this experiment. This was a great way to introduce the concepts of solids, liquids and gasses.
Fun with Slime
Children love making and playing with slime. It is a great way to introduce new vocabulary and encourage conversation, especially with toddlers.
The children are always fascinated with animals. When guest speakers bring their pets, the children have opportunities to interact with live animals and ask questions.
Learning About Butterflies
Young children are naturally curious. Often the best learning opportunities happen when children discover something that interests them, and they start asking questions. Finding this butterfly ignited a conversation on the butterfly life cycle.
Children explore speed and gravity by building simple ramps and pathways.
Planting and Growing
The children worked together on building an outdoor garden. Now, we have a great reason to talk about the seasons and the the plants' life cycles! We take turns caring for the zucchini, pumpkins, tomatoes and sunflowers.
