The first few weeks of school we set up our Science Notebooks, learned about what Scientists do, and what we will do as Kindergarten Scientists. A big part of this launching unit is learning how to observe changes. We learned how to draw like a scientist. In table groups, students added drops of food coloring around the edge of a milk-filled plate. The next Scientist dipped a Q-tip into dish soap and then pressed the Q-tip into the center of the plate. The colors began to swirl and move around the plate! Together they observed the changes that took place and drew what they saw.
