 Our Study of community helpers has been amazing. We have visited the fire station and had in a chief elevator inspector, Envirochallenger, engineer, sewers, former army captain, and a baker to talk to us about their work in the community and involve the kids in activities related to their work. The students were inspired  and interested for each presentation and I am so grateful for all the volunteers that were so patient with and interested in the students.

 The Bumblebees had an amazing science adventure creating and examining artificial snow. What started as a small white powder (primarily Sodium polyacrylate) grew exponentially bigger when water was added creating a cool, white pile of snow. Each polymer can absorb 200 to 300 times its own mass in water. Add too much water, though and just like the real thing, it turns to slush. The good news is this snow can be dried out and created again.

 Seeing live theatre is such an important experience for children. And when we could see some of our favorite books come to life on stage it was even better. Yay, Elephant and Piggie!

 Swimming has begun! We are so lucky to have these lessons as part of our PE program. The Bumblebees are getting good exercise while learning an important skill and having fun!

 The Bumblebees put on their scientist's goggles to examine little shiny bead-like structures. They observed them to be hard, to roll, to shine. Then they added some water and watched. The tiny objects began to change and grow. They theorized that they were absorbing the water. They continue to watch as they grow and change. This chemistry experiment is fascinating to all.
