K1 children had a surprise visit from a community helper, Risa’s mom, Sanjana who pretended to be a scientist and walked into class to surprise the children. The children had a blast doing experiments that the parent had come prepared for.
She used simple ingredients like baking soda, coloured water and a balloon to show formation of gas in the form of bubbles.
The other children were fascinated seeing Risa’s mother in the role of a scientist! What began in silence and a little apprehension led to great learning and excitement when the children started trying their hand at the experiment themselves!
