Kindergarten explores science

Kindergarten students hold Bolt, the chick that hatched in their classroom.

Teacher Sally Knustrom and the kindergarten are continuing with their “Just Ask” science program.

This year the kindergarten class received a weather science kit. The kindergarten students have been recording the weather each day, reading thermometers, exploring puddles, experimenting with color and temperature and observing clouds. When the kindergarten students compared the temperature between a thermometer that was wrapped in black construction paper to one that was wrapped in white construction paper, the difference in temperature was 16 degrees!

Recently, the kindergarteners finished observing the incubation of chicken, turkey and duck eggs. The students had plastic model eggs that portray the growth of the embryo along its 21 day cycle.
