Xīn nián kuài lè!
Some things just don’t get along well with each other. Take oil and water as an example, you can mix them together and shake as hard as you like but they’ll never become friends…..or will they? Take this fun experiment a step further and find out how bringing oil and water together can help you do your dishes.
While water often mixes with other liquids to form solutions, oil and water does not. Water molecules are strongly attracted to each other, this is the same for oil because they are more attracted to their own molecules they just don’t mix together. They separate and the oil floats above the water because it has a lower density.
If you really think oil and water belong together then try adding some dishwashing liquid or detergent. Detergent is attracted to both water and oil helping them all join together and form something called an emulsion. This is extra handy when washing those greasy dishes, the detergent takes the oil and grime off the plates and into the water, yay!
One of the favorite science activities for kids is observing plants.
Planting activities are one of our favorite things to do with preschoolers. They love being able to care for something that is real and to see firsthand the growth process!
As Maria Montessori said, “Nothing should be given to the brain that is not ﬁrst given to the hand”. We embrace hands-on learning in our Montessori classroom. We are using every opportunity to make learning practical.
Our simple science experiment included planting seeds, observing the processed of seed germination, the life cycle of a plant.
Human Rights Day is observed every year on 10 December – the day the United Nations General Assembly adopted, in 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. This year, Human Rights Day marks the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a milestone document that proclaimed the inalienable rights which everyone is inherently entitled to as a human being — regardless of race, colour, religion, sex, language, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.
Youth for Human Rights Toronto – Ms Julia Simon (Principal), and our elementary students Connor & Jacob was special guest speakers!!!
We want all of our students to truly enjoy what they are doing and to keep the focus on having fun while learning, getting exercise, and building their coordination and confidence level. Classes are personalized to fit all learning styles by using a variety of techniques.
Classes include a warm-up and stretch using a variety of yoga positions and activities accompanied by soft music. The class includes instruction on many dance styles such as classical and lyrical ballet along with jazz and creative movement. Ballet-based dance class focuses on basic ballet skills, expression & creative movement.
The constructive triangles are used to demonstrate that all plane geometric figures can be constructed from triangles. Black guidelines are painted in different positions on the triangles to help the child to construct other figures. This should be encouraged an exploratory work that will provide a foundation for later concepts of equivalency, similarity, and congruency.
