Early Childhood Students Experience Spooky Science!
Lansing Early Childhood Classes got to enjoy some spooky science on Halloween. Students got hands-on and even a little dirty at times, exploring pumpkin volcanoes, fizzy skulls, dancing ghosts, and disappearing monsters. Each child put their fine motor skills to work by scooping and pouring the necessary ingredients to make their pumpkins erupt and ghosts dance. Their little hands also worked hard to squeeze squirt bottles and eyedroppers to make their skulls dissolve, and their monsters disappear. Some great predictions, observations, and conclusions were made at each station, and the students used their senses to describe what they saw and heard happening. There were many “ooohs and aaahs” heard, eyes wide with excitement, and lots of smiles, but the crowd favorite was definitely the pumpkin volcanoes! Once the science fun ended, the early childhood students participated in trick-or-treating around the Early Childhood building and over at the district office. Thank you to those who helped make the day spooktacular!
