We have been using her cuisenaire rods to illustrate the principles of division as Hannah is definitely a visual learner, and she has managed to work her way up to dividing by 9 this way.
We also did some kitchen science this week. We learned about surface tension and gas expansion.
Hannah poured a dish of milk and then added drops of food colouring.
Then she mixed dish soap with a little water and dropped it into the milk using a cotton bud. The soap broke the surface tension of the milk and made the colours swirl in a tie dyed effect.
We also demonstrated that the volume of gas increases with temperature by microwaving a bar of soap!
Hannah loved that the bar of soap grew rather impressively (it was at least three times it's original size) and turned into a turtle sculpture!!
Of course there has also been lots of play this week with three lovely play dates and a trip to the (very wet and muddy) park. Hannah and her friend Ben were the only children there!
