We are working on the letter G this week, yesterday you practiced writing a capital G. Today let’s practice the lowercase g. Write the lowercase g five times.

When you’re done, dance and sing along to this fun letter G song.

Science

Today we’re going to work on some science. We’re going to make predictions (a guess) about what we think will happen, and then test our prediction. We’ll record our test in a graph so we can remember what happened!

Our science experiment today will be float or sink.

FLOAT means to stay on top of the water.

Image result for float
This inner tube is floaing on top of the water.

SINK means to fall to the bottom of the water.

Image result for toy sinking in water
These marbles are sinking to the bottom of the water.

Step 1. Collect a few things from around your house that you don’t mind getting wet. This is what I found at my house.

Step 2. Draw a table like this on a piece of paper.

Step 3. Make your predictions (guesses) about if you think that item will sink or float. Write the word or draw a picture of the item in the column.

Step 4. Fill up a container with water. You can use anything you have at your house like a bucket, a drinking glass, or the bath tub!

Step 5. Test your predictions! Put each item in the water and see if they sink or float. Were your predictions correct? Were you surprised by any of the tests?

Don’t Forget…

As always, make sure you’re reading together for at least 20 minutes and get outside and go for a walk. It’s supposed to warm up and I am excited to see some sun!

Have a great day!
