Students at The Children's Academy learn about science.
Kylie Koscoe, of Mad Science, introduced dry ice and dinosaurs to the 2- and 3-year-olds at The Children’s Academy July 7.
Most of the children were fascinated with the bubbles that were filled with dry ice frost, while others weren’t sure what to make of them.
They even made their own bubbles out of dish soap, water and a pixie cleaner for a bubble wand.
Koscoe asked the children, Is the ice cold? Confused by the frost dry ice makes from moisture in the atmosphere, some children said it was hot. Fortunately, the children were able to feel the cool from the frost to understand its concept.
If the 2-year-olds could have had it their way, they would have kept Koscoe for more bubbles.
Upstairs, she went to the 3-year-olds, who quickly realized they’d be learning about dinosaurs. Koscoe went over the brief rules with the 11 3-year-olds.
She started off her talk about dinosaurs by asking, “Do dinosaurs like cheeseburger?” No one in the group of 3-year-olds responded.
After some quick basics of what dinosaurs do, the group was able to dig up some fossil replicas by excavating them with paint brushes. They even made dinosaur skeletal imprints onto clay to take home.
