math

This week we are continuing our addition and subtraction unit.

Monday

For today’s lesson, I am going to introduce subtraction using manipulatives. For example, I will start with three bears. I will tell the girls I need one bear. I need to take away two bears to get one. I will show them how to count starting with three until we get to one and take those away. We will subtract from the number 8 today only.

For five minutes, they will practice adding on using manipulatives. They can practice up to the number 8.

This week we are going to combine Science and Art with the Crystal Names Experiment adapted from Play Dough to Plato.

 

Materials:

white Pipe cleaners

Fishing line {twine or yarn will work too}

wooden skewers

Scissors

Glasses container {one for each color}

A container large enough to hold your name {if doing your name as a single piece written in cursive}

Borax

Food Coloring {optional, if you want colored letters you can dye the borax solution or use colored pipe cleaners}

Liquid measuring cup

Tablespoon

Heat Safe Mixing Bowl

 

Directions:

  1. Take the white pipe cleaner and shape the letters in your name. You can leave them separate or attach them together (cursive).
  2. Take the fishing line and attach it to the pipe cleaner and to the wooden skewer on the other end.
  3. Heat some water, not too hot to burn though.
  4. Then add 3 tablespoons of borax to each container (for different colors).
  5. Then top it with 3 cups of water and stir to make sure the borax dissolves.
  6. Add food coloring to the jar to make it the color you want.
  7. Dip the pipe cleaner into the solution and let it sit overnight.
  8. The next day remove it and see the crystal shapes.
