Cheetah Room learns about water at Tender Tots Decatur Avenue

This month the thematic unit is all about water!  The Cheetah classroom performed an experiment and observed eight items that either sink or float in water.  First the students created a graph using tally marks and numbers to predict which items would sink or float.  After everyone made their prediction, they took eight items: metal marble, red and green Legos, plastic red pepper, plastic doughnut, plastic strawberry, plastic mushroom, and plastic green grass, and placed them in the water to conduct the experiment.  The Cheetah class found out that only two items, the metal marble and the plastic green grass sunk to the bottom!!  ALL of the items floated.  Take a look at all of our scientist in the making.
