Heart Science Two Ways

Since children are born with a sense of wonder and a passion to understand the world around them, they instinctively and constantly ask questions, observe, and try out solutions. These two science experiments were such lovely ways to explore science concepts. 

1. Hidden Colored Hearts: In a heart shaped cupcake tin and silicone wrappers we placed Colorations Liquid WaterColors as the base and then covered the color completely with baking soda. In plastic beakers we provided vinegar and twisty droppers. The children were invited to experiment and surface the hidden colors all through the power of a chemical reaction between baking soda and vinegar.

2. Frozen Heart Flower Excavation: We used our leftover flowers from our Love Potion invitation and froze them in our silicone heart moulds. We provided water with liquid watercolors and twisty droppers and invited the children to excavate & release the flowers from a solid to liquid state.

Through these types of invitations children build a foundation for future scientific learning that can directly influence their interests later in life. Children are programmed from birth to be scientists and by tapping into their natural predispositions early on, we can nurture and establish a positive approach to science that will stay with them into the future and foster a lifelong lover of science or any subject for that matter.

Providing these opportunities supports the development of other skills and attributes such as: communication skills, collaborative skills, team working  perseverance, analytical, reasoning, problem-solving skills, expands their vocabulary, encourages them to extend & embed their learning through related literacy/numeracy, honor creativity, develops patience, turn taking/listening, organization, attention to detail, and so much more. These are all lifelong skills that will help them throughout the rest of their lives.
