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.
After 2 weeks off due to cancelling our summer program, “Mattison Farm Stay”, we are ready to get back to work fully charged!
During our 2 weeks off, we got a lot done and were able to relax some. It was a great time to think about our students and how we want to provide the best way to improve their English skills from kindergartners to college students as well as business clients.
We appreciate our students’ trust and hard work even through this pandemic. As NY opens up, we will continue to welcome students as well as newcomers in a clean sanitized environment and online.
Mattison Farm Stay 2019 has started. A little update between our sessions while we are back to Harrison, NY for a few days.
Our first group was from all different ages and backgrounds. It’s great to see them work hard together and get along so well. Our focus on this program is to let them experience wonderful North-eastern American farms while we teach practical English,agriculture economy, environmental issues and American culture.
As each day went by, we saw changes in them.
They were able to see what was happening to take responsibilities independently, but still work together. There are so many things we would like to tell you. Since we’ll start another session on 7/31, we are focusing on preparation now.
We’ll be on the farm without internet for a while again, so we apologize if we can’t get in touch with you quickly. The whole new 2019 farm stay experience will be updated in August! Have a great summer everyone!
Farm Stay 2019 is SOLD OUT, THANK YOU! Again, we get to introduce a whole new world to 10 of our great friends. We are so excited for both A and B Mattison Farm Stay sessions. During our farm stay, participants will learn and experience about;
☆sustainable farm living in modern society(economy)
☆American culture and manners(sociology)
☆building strong English communication skills（English Language）
We can hardly wait to see them! Please keep your eye on our upcoming program. Thank you for your support!
