will be introduced with a story - Bonzo's Bubbles. This story will
be discussed and questions asked: What do you think is inside Bonzo's
Bubbles? What colour / shape are they? Have you ever blown bubbles?
will be shown some containers e.g. bottle, carton etc. Question:
What is inside? What is inside a ball? What is inside a balloon?
What is inside bubbles? It will be established that air is inside
them all. It is also all around us.
will be used to concretise this:
will be pushed into a basin of water. As the bottle fills with water
air will be pushed out and form bubbles in the water. (Picture will
be taken of child experimenting with this.)
will be blown up to demonstrate that air takes up a space (picture)
With a basin
of warm water and washing up liquid, the children can experiment
with bubbles in groups. (Pictures)
discussion on observations and findings will take place. The children
will be given pages to represent pictorially what they learned /
enjoyed / found. Pictures taken will be used to review concepts
at a later date.
