Our Bulletin Board Project

For the past few weeks, we have been working on doing art projects for our classroom bulletin board. We are in the midst of enjoying watching the life cycle of a butterfly, so I decided that was what we were going to make on our bulletin board!

It all started about a month ago with sponge painting our blue sky...

Then it was time to make our caterpillars!

The cocoon/chrysalis stage was next...

Finally, it ended with painting our colorful butterflies!

Fish Hatchery

On Friday we went to the Fish Hatchery!  We got to feed some VERY hungry fish, and then we got to go on a nature hike. It was a beautiful day to be outside!

Ice Cube "Painting"

We experimented with ice cubes and Jell-O powder today. What would happen to the powder as the ice cube melted? It was considered a "painting" activity, but it really wasn't about the end product at all. They just enjoyed watching the melting process, and seeing the affect it had on the Jell-O powder they had sprinkled (errr...dumped) on their paper.

And yes, I once again underestimated the messiness of the project! Thankfully, I decided to do it upstairs in the lunchroom where there was a sink nearby for sticky hands. :-)
