Colors and Codes

letter languageColors

Science is all about investigating the world around us. When teaching science, I suggest that you add a touch of color and fun at every opportunity.

For example, the photo of the bee on the beautiful purple flower with the bright green background is is very pleasing to the eye. The picture alone can be used to introduce physical properties.

physical properties: characteristics that can be used to describe stuff.

Physical properties include, color, size, texture, weight, and the state of matter (gas, solid, liquid).

Coded Message

What about the two word bubbles!

What is the message? (“See the Bee?” “Yes”)

What kind of organisms are speaking? (For fun, kids can describe the speakers. Could they be from outer space, or just kids that have spent too much time texting their friends?)

I invite you to share your ideas for making science fun.
