Third Class Scientists

The Doves took part in group science experiments recently.  One group searched soil for minibeasts and another studied dead flies and spiders under a magnifying glass.  A group made a bottle organ and then played a tune they had composed while some of their classmates studied Morse code and sent messages to one another.  A kaleidoscope was made using mirrors so as to observe bouncing images.  As part of their study of the movement of the human body, one group made a cardboard model of an arm so as to observe how muscles shorten and lengthen.  The final group made ‘elephants ears’ and a homemade stethoscope as part of their study of sound.  Each child took part in a presentation to the class, outlining their experiment and the science behind it.  U.L. will not want for enthusiasts in years to come!
