Hay Springs Elementary collaborated with Chadron State College to host the first annual Family Science Night on November 20th.   This fun-filled evening featured a structured environment for families to explore, experiment, and talk about science.  Hands-on educational, activities were planned and organized by Chadron State pre-service elementary students for families to investigate different science concepts.  Elementary students got their hands dirty making an edible soil profile, observed a chemical reaction while making elephant toothpaste, created a model of the different levels of the ocean, and constructed a marshmallow, straw, and toothpick structure that would survive an earthquake.

Thank you to everyone who helped with and participated in Family Science Night as it takes everyone to make these events a success!  It was exciting to see such a great turnout!  We hope you all had a great night and that we can make Family Science Night an annual event.

This equipment is made for easy use by little hands.

Preschooler, Kindergarten, and First Grade had a different experience during Library this week.  Instead of listening to Mrs. Matthews read a book, they watched the book video of The Dot by Peter Reynolds.  A little girl, Vashti, who thinks she can’t draw is challenged by her art teacher to make a mark on the page and then sign it.  She goes on to make more and more dots.  The students then made their mark by  creating their own “dot” pictures.

The pictures were then turned into 3D creations through the Colar app (http://colarapp.com/). The app is free as well as several sheets to color.  Parents can then download the app and view their child’s pictures.

Here are some samples of the creations from Tuesday:

Castle Defense is an action-packed math game. To play, type the answers to activate your archers. Kill the skeletons before they reach safety. Use the number keys on your keyboard and the brain in your head. Good luck!

We have been learning about the Earth and its movement in space.  We are also learning about the moon, stars and other planets.  The second graders had a great time with the song “Night and Day”.  The song reinforced our understanding of the difference between rotation and orbit.  Plus, the song helps us to remember that the light we see from the moon is not its own light, but a reflection from the sun.  The moonlight concept can be hard to comprehend.  We hope you enjoy the song as much as we did.  A big thank you to the camerawoman, Mrs. Anderson for making this extra special!

Enjoy,
Mrs. Binger’s Second Grade
