Oil とWaterにAlka Seltzer(Citric Acid とBaking Soda)の反応を楽しむ実験です。 どうしてOilとWaterが混ざらないの？ Why don’t the oil and the water get mixed? どうしてFood ColorはOil にとけないのにWater はとけるの？ Why doesn’t the food color melt into the oil, but melts into the water? 色の泡が浮かび上がってはじけて,でまた下に落ちてくよ。 The color bubbles float up to the top and pop! Then they drop down to the bottom again. わぁ…すっごーい！ Oh my….it’s so incredible! 信じられない。 So amazing. あぁ、だからLava Lampっていうのね。 Oh, that why they call it “Lava Lamp”
実験の締めくくりの、５つの素材のDensityを考える実験も生徒さんの予想を覆します。 Material ⇒plastic, glass, rubber, silver, woodが素材です。 What’s your prediction? Will it float on the oil? Will it float in the oil? Will it sink in the oil? Will it float in the water? Will it sink in the water? どの位置で5つの素材が静止するのでしょう。 自分の予想を書き込み、実際に実験して確認。
生徒さんがThe glass is more dense than the rubber. The wood is less dense than silver. とそれぞれのDensityと関係について意見を交わして終了するレッスンはきっとご家庭でも楽しめるアクティビティですね。

As we approach this holiday season, we decided to do “Holiday Activity” for those who attend in-person lessons.
Many schools in the US have started all remote learning recently. It took us a long time to decide whether we should do this kind of activity or not. However, we believe our one-to-one teaching environment is safe enough as long as we follow the state guidelines.
As much as we are sorry for those who are quarantined at this moment, we hope to bring cheer and smiles to as many students as possible.
Please provide your child a well fitting mask while he/she attend our in-person lessons to protect others and us.
Look at their smiles! It’s hard not to be excited about launching rockets into the air. This activity was a success. Everyone built their own rocket from scratch and each of them left the launch pad and flew high up into the air! Each of the participants were so into building their rocket they lost track of time.
We studied about the 2 processes used in launching the rockets. The chemical reaction between baking soda and vinegar took a bit longer than using the air pump but it was great to hear the screams of surprise when the rocket blasted off.
These TPR activities are perfect for getting everyone involved, speaking and learning new vocabulary and natural expressions!
We are enjoying our annual Easter egg coloring throughout the week. We love to pull out each student’s interest to make it into a deep conversation while we color eggs. Seems like they are more comfortable talking about their lives when we are just chatting like this.
Every activity lends itself to English learning😊. We really enjoy seeing how our students grow from hands on learning.
We spent our Saturday and Sunday building and preparing our vegetable beds. We’re excited to use these to add another dimension to our lessons.
