Gr.1 Exploring Energy

On Wednesday the Grade One classes had their first visit from the Scientists in the Classroom.  This first visit concentrated on the subject of Energy where they spent the day exploring the impact that energy has on our daily lives! It was an information filled day with many experiments:

– they investigated thermal energy by making a bubble grow
– used a real thermometer to explore the effect of colour on heat absorption
– built a class circuit to make light and sound.
They also learned how to become an energy wizard and conserve energy in their houses and spent some time unleashing their inner Picassos to create abstract paintings using solar power!
In all, it was a wonderful day where they learned a lot about Energy.
