Most of my students have never seen or touched an actual coconut. I brought one to school and let the students each hold it and shake it. They were astounded that they could hear the liquid inside.
We did some experiments today with coconuts. First, we tested whether a coconut would sink or float in water. We wrote our question, made a guess, and then performed our experiment.
After all that hard work, we needed a snack. :) We each tried some coconut.
We made our first class graph with the question "Do you like coconut?" (This came from Julie Lee.)
We had a lot of fun with our Chicka Chicka Boom Boom activities. It was a lot of fun! Next week we are moving on to "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you See?" Check back next week to see all our color fun!
Have a great weekend!
