Scientists for the week

The first and second graders are conducting different experiments every day this week. They are using the Scientific Method while doing the experiments.

Today’s experiment was called “Invisible Skin.” The students attempted to wash their hands with cold water after rubbing vegetable oil on their hands. They learned that water and oil don’t mix!
