Mrs. Bolin’s first grade class did an experiment with “making predictions”.  This week they have been learning that good readers make predictions before and during their reading.  They learned that scientists also make predictions before they perform an experiment.  This experiment included food coloring drops in milk with a Q-tip covered with liquid soap dipped in the middle.  The students predicted that it would blow up or make a rainbow.  They realized the outcome was the colors moved away from the Q-tip to make a star-like shape.  The students had a fun yet educational time.
