This week we worked on their volume and projecting their voices.

SCIENCE-

This week we learned the new scientific method song, to the tune of Happy Birthday.  For our experiment, We talked about spiders and how they sense vibrations.  We also talked about amazing bacteria and why fish go “belly-up” after they die.  🙂

FINE ARTS- We learned about mirror image and used our OiLS to complete and decorate a Greek vase.  I followed the tutorial found at:

This was a great project and she has more advanced vases if your kids would be interested in making a whole collections of vases 🙂
