As part of our focus on Science, this term, in STEAM, P-2 students observed the effects of heat and cold on common food items. They hung bags containing a cut-up apple, a whole banana, chocolate chips, cheese and a slice of bread in the classroom windows and placed the same bagged items in the staffroom refrigerator. Students made predictions and observed weekly changes over a month. You might like to ask your child about the effects of light and cold on these food items! The children also experimented with liquids and solids by observing the effects of freezing on fruit juice sticks. They made a hypothesis that linked chocolate to the fruit sticks because they both have properties that can change form a liquid into a solid and then from a solid into a liquid form.
