Mad Scientist Day - Part 2 (and a Linky Party!)

Mad Scientist Day... What a FUNTASTIC day!!! 

Students rotated to each 2nd grade classroom to perform a science experiment. 

Twenty minutes was spent in each room performing the experiment. The students also wrote their observations and their conclusions in their student books.

Here is our day in pictures.

Our AWESOME principal & asst.principal had lab coats made for each of us.

 Isn't that adorable? (And so, so sweet!)

 Here are the 10 experiments we did.

Here is the cover of the books the students carried to each room.

  5. What a fun day! Maybe we should do this in our team to have our kids experience more different experiments. Thanks for the linky!

  6. What a fabulous idea. Bet the kids remember that day. What a great way to make science accessible and fun. Well done!

  7. The idea is fantastic, I really really like it and I bet the children had such an awesome day! I also thought the lab coats were pretty cool too. I try to teach as creatively as possible and you have definitely inspired me with an idea to do exactly that. :) I will certainly be back to see more posts soon.

    I hope you can visit my blog too
    all the best

  11. Do you have a Mad Scientist Day Unit On TPT? Or is that just wishful thinking?
