Today we had a class discussion about our water samples. Everyone did a great job listening respectfully to the ideas of others. We were curious and excited!
Mrs Ho: What are you wondering about our water samples?
Stevan: I’m wondering why all the water… I wonder why all the water is the same colour but some aren’t because every water colour is the same but when you put it in a jar it’s a different colour to another.
Student 1: Some of the waters are clean. Mine is dirty so it’s a different colour.
Stevan: All of ours are a little more dirty but some are more dirty.
Lyssie: I was listening to Antonio but some are dirty but some of the bottles are coloured so like pop bottles.
Brant: I’m wondering why all of our water I bet are from a different place.
Owin: I wonder if there are any little animals like plankton and stuff.
Parker: Can we create stuff with water?
Student 2: All of the water samples one of them are like dirty but I’m not sure if Antonio’s is from a lake.
Student 1: Mine is from a beach.
Lyssie: It is from a beach because it has little tiny shells. The little tiny shells I went to a lake that had them and they call them zebra mussels. When they’re not crushed up there’s a thing inside that goes inside water like a mussel.
Mrs. Ho: How might we investigate our wonders?
Chloe: Getting a magnifying glass and look closely in the water samples.
Lyssie: I was wondering my water was cold when I got it but I’m wondering if it would still be cold when I take the lid off.
Stevan: Can we bring it home and if we have a magniscope. We can put it on the glass thing and see if we can see any living bacteria on it.
