Summer SAVY Session 3, Day 1 – Matter Mysteries
Day 1: This morning, we began our exploration of science and what scientists do by utilizing Frayer models to generate definitions, examples, and non-examples of scientists. We learned basic science safety rules, including how to keep our senses safe while making observations. Be sure to ask your child to demonstrate “wafting!” Reviewing what we learned about safety, we got a preview of some of the tools and materials we’ll use this week. We then had a great lunch getting to know our new friends!

- Change can be natural or manmade, random or predictable.

Have a wonderful evening!
