😎Cool Experiment 🧪

Featured

During this snowy season, we are staying warm and cozy and enjoying a cool science experiment with our students while we learn to describe the reactions and express feeling.

まだまだ真冬のNY。マティソンでは暖かい屋内でサイエンスの実験を行いながら、英語レッスンをおこなっています。科学反応や自分の思ったことを説明やレポートにまとめるなど、全て考えさせる興味深い内容です。

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”

色んな表現が飛び交います。

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。

Holiday Activity 2020

In-Person lesson Holiday Activity

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.
