From 11th – 19th of August, Montessori Academy celebrated National Science Week! This week of exciting experiments and events aims to encourage children to be interested in science, and to be fascinated by the world we live in. Below are age appropriate activities our students participated in during Science Week:
0-1 Age Group
Magnet experiments: Children experimented with different sized magnets and magnetic materials to discover how positive and negative ions attract and repel.
1-2 Age Group
Play dough experiments: The educators created play dough with their children. Students observed the change of state that occurs when combining different ingredients needed to create play dough.
2-3 Age Group
Goop experiments: The toddlers enjoyed creating different coloured batches of stretchy goop with their educators.
