HEBRON | Hebron’s second grade teachers and staff, middle school science teachers, and members of Hebron’s National Junior Honor Society hosted the annual second grade Reading and Science Night.
Students and their families had the opportunity to check out the book fair upon arrival. The book fair was available to parents even after the activities began for the students for some last-minute shopping.
Once students signed in, they were then split into four groups. The groups were sent to a different location in the middle school to begin the science related activities. An obstacle course room was constructed in the gym and gave the students the opportunity to have fun by running through a series of challenges.
In the Mystery Room, students reached into boxes to guess what object was there, played interactive game on a whiteboard and had to guess what animals were visible through just a small section that could be seen. After this, students went to a Crazy Lab room to witness eggs being sucked into bottles, rainbows created in milk, elephant toothpaste explosions, glow-in-the-dark silly putty, giant bubbles they could stand in, and Mentos fountains.
The last room was the Tools Room where students had the opportunity to figure out how to light a light-bulb, look through microscopes at various substances and work with many other tools scientists might use.
