On Wednesday, 2nd and 3rd class were busy finding out what a scientist does. We worked in groups to conduct a materials experiment. Children had to think and work like a scientist to identify the mystery material in the science discovery box. Children worked together to predict the result. We had so much fun trying to figure it out!
Some of us got the chance to dress like a scientist working in a laboratory!
