Today, in Explorations (a science class with Mrs. Armfield) the kids heard the story of Little Blue and Little Yellow. Here's the condensed version of the story: Little Blue and Little Yellow were friends who lost each other. They were so happy when they found each other, that they hugged. Do you know what happened when they hugged? They made green! :-) The students were given two globs of white frosting. Mrs. Armfield had them put blue food coloring in one glob of frosting and mix it together to make blue. Then, they put yellow in the other glob of frosting and mixed it together to make yellow. Lastly, they mixed the blue and yellow frosting together to make green. Then, they got to spread it on a graham cracker and enjoy the tasty snack.
We also did some ice painting today. I put food coloring in ice cubes, and they used the ice cubes to paint the letter "I" for their alphabet scrapbooks.
