Friday 5th March


Todays activity is all about investigating and finding out!

At Nursery we are going to peel our oranges ourselves- this is great for developing finger strength. Then we are going to count the segments and see how many we get- do you have any seeds in yours?


If you have a few oranges I have a challenge for you-

Can you place your orange in a bowl of water and see what happens- does it float or sink?

Next can you peel your orange and then place it in the same bowl of water- does it float or sink? 

Can you talk about what happened? 

Maybe you can find some more things that float or sink and do some investigating of your own.
