After Motor Skills we returned to the class for our first science experiment. This activity was also an exercise in fine motor control. The goal was to learn how to use the pipettes. We use them for a wide variety of activities all year. Learning to control the pipettes is tricky at first but the Awesome Owls seemed ready for the challenge. Not only did we experiment with the transfer of water from one cup to another but we discovered the properties of absorption when water landed on our napkins.
"Look, I did it!"
"My water is moving on the paper!"
"I can make bubbles in my cup."
"This is fun, can I have more water?"
"Look, I'm pinching it!"
