On Friday, April 3rd, the students in Mrs. Stoner’s and Mrs. Radke’s Grade Two classes had a visitor from the Bell Homestead, National Historic Site.
The students learned about “Boats that Float!”
Did you know that Alexander Graham Bell built hydrofoils in his later years? This two hour session introduced students to the exciting world of water through hand-on experiments.
The students explored the properties and behaviours of various liquids and solids, and then the children built a floating boat.
All this in a historical context with a local angle.
This week will also see the return of GEM Fest to St. George-German School – in which classes will learn from a variety of presenters from local galleries and museums.
