All eight Gates Chili universal pre-kindergarten classes recently had the opportunity to learn about science from Karie Kilner, of Sensational Science.
The lessons provided students with experience in describing similarities and differences between solids and liquids, asking questions and making predictions based on their observations and testing predictions through exploration and experimentation.
Activities for the “Frozen” science lesson included building Elsa’s castle, making and melting a mold of Elsa’s frozen hand, making instant snow, “Frozen” painting and trying on a blubber glove.
“Young children are natural scientists, curious about the world around them, so the Sensational Science ‘Frozen’-themed lessons were very engaging,” said Erin Ugine, coordinator of early childhood/P-2 learning.
This is the third year UPK students learned about science from Kilner, a former science teacher who now leads Sensational Science lessons in the community.
