Even though oxygen is an invisible gas, its presence can be demonstrated by doing a simple experiment.
First we cut a small piece off a leafy plant. We put it in a jar of water and stood it upside down in a basin of water. Over a couple of days we observed the plant carefully. By the fourth day we saw tiny bubbles of oxygen form on the the leaves and stem of the plant.
Plants make oxygen for us. The plant gives off oxygen through tiny pores in its leaves. So cool!!
We thought about places we’ve been to and places that are special to use. We painted some beautiful pictures of our happy memories just like Jack B Yeats.
After we designed our own winter clothing collections! Here are some pictures of us hard at work.
Next we looked at some artworks by Folk Artist Heather Galler. She uses lots of lines, shapes and colour to paint ordinary everyday things that she sees.
Looking at her work inspired us to do our own “Folk Art” pictures. We drew our favourite hot drinks and just like Heather Galler we used lines and shapes to fill the spaces. We used oil pastels to colour them in.
Have a look at our fantastic work!
We are learning some groovey moves to Justin Timberlake’s ‘Can’t Stop the Feeling’.
Just look how great we are!
We can sit where ever is comfortable around the room!
