At today's first session I shared the picture book 'Ada Twist, Scientist' by Andrea Beatty. This is a fabulous book jam packed with easy to understand explanations of what it means to be curious. Learners were engrossed. Today we were scientists too! We planned, designed and built Rocket Ships. I 'built' a very simplified model and we did an initial test. The short story is much to the children's delight I ended up smelling of vinegar from head to toe for the rest of the day! Interestingly the bottle travelled a huge distance albeit it was sideways. Learners will be testing their designs during next weeks session.
I wonder what the kids will call me, today one said "I'm looking for the Apple Teacher"......and another said "Are you Mrs Maker?" ......funny.
