Friendship: Summative Project

Our summative project is almost complete and will be sent home next week.  All of the children have finished painting their rocks and some have finished gluing on eyes.  The children have put a lot
of thought into the colours used and type of eyes for their rocks. The individuality of each child is evident in the rocks making each rock special and unique.

The children have answered the following questions:
- Tell me about friendship in your life:
- Who are your friends and why?
- Tell me a time when you gave friendship?
- When did you receive friendship?

Their responses will be sent home in a card along with their rocks.

Verdi: Catapults

Verdi, a young python, does not want to change.  The last thing he wants his to turn from his beautiful yellow to boring green. Verdi tries to change his colour back to yellow by scrubbing his skin and then covering it with mud. Nothing works.  He notices that the sky is bright yellow just like he used to be. Verdi launches himself from the treetops certain that his flight will change him back to yellow.

How did Verdi fly through the air? What a great opportunity to learn about catapults. Elastics and popsicle sticks were the only materials need to build a catapult.  First the children, used plastic snakes to sail through the area.  It was delightful to hear the excitement and the laughter as the children made  their "Verdi" fly.

I asked the children which would travel farther; a plastic snake or a pompom.  Most of the children though the heavier item, the snake, would travel a further distance.  The children were amazed at how far and how high a pompom could move.
