We made our sock snowmen this week as well as some Christmas tree decorations. Our snowmen are so cute!

Today, we went to visit Mr. Walsh's 6th class to see their finished lighthouses. We were incredibly impressed with their hard work and their ability to explain how to make a lighthouse. Their designs were all so different and there was a unique feature on each one. Our class loves any STEM activities so we really enjoyed the visit!

We have been learning about the water cycle this month. We decided to do an experiment on evaporation. One of our girls, Dhay, designed this experiment! The cup on the right has lost water. The cup on the left has not lost water. We saw water droplets in the top cup that poured back into the bottom. We are monitoring it weekly.

Bhí na cailíní sa bhialann. Bhí siad ag obair mar fhreastalaí agus d'ith siad gach rud. Bhí ocras an domhain orthu! Is custaiméirí rialta iad, beidh siad ar ais arís. Ná déan dearmad, bíonn an ceart ag an gcustaiméir i gconaí!!
The girls are learning all about food in Irish this month. We pretended to be at a restaurant. We had customers come in and we had waitresses taking orders. Super fun!

We have been learning about water in geography. For science week, we did an experiment with teacher. We tried to get water to move from one cup into an empty cup. Sounds impossible doesn't it! Unless you use a little science. We used tissue to absorb the water and transfer it to the empty cup. We even saw some colour mixing happening. Check out the demonstration below.
To celebrate science week, we have been doing some simple experiment demonstrations in class. As with all experiments, our teacher tells us that safety is important and we need to ask an adult for help. Here, we learned how oil and water do not mix. We made lava lamps in two colours. We liked the blue one the best because the contrasting colours looked better. We even added some glitter for fun! Who doesn't love glitter☺

We are learning about static electricity. First, we made butterflies using card and tissue paper. Next, we rubbed a balloon on our hair or our jumper and put it close to the butterfly. The butterfly was attracted to the balloon. It moved using static electricity. We also tried to bend water, make our hair stand up as well as other fun experiments. We have more interesting experiments lined up next week for science week.
