In what ways do you think the program benefits the kindergartners? Try to explain several with support.
Why is the KinderPals program beneficial to 5th graders? Believe it or not, you should be getting something out of the program as well!
What challenges did you experience in KinderPals this year?
What improvements could be made to the program for next year?
Do you think the kindergartners enjoyed the stories from Peekapak? Why do you think that? Do you have any evidence to support your answer?
The KinderPals program is where you teach kids, in our case kindergarteners. about character traits like Honesty, Empathy, and more! We use the program to teach our kindergarten buddies about these character traits using peekapak. We get together once every month to teach them about the character traits. but we have to make sure our buddies are having fun almost the whole time.
It benefits them a lot. It makes my day better, and I bet that it makes their day. It also helps them learn about these important skills that they need in life, while having fun.
It's beneficial to us because it helps us build relationships with some younger kids. It also benefits us because it helps us learn how to teach other kids about important things in life. Which if you want to be a teacher, you need those skills.
I only faced one big challenge of getting by buddy to be in a good relationship with Colin and I. but after 2 periods we built a relationship with him and he would talk to us.
I don't know of any.
Yes, because during the stories my partner looked like they were having fun and enjoying the stories. My evidence is tat during the period he would usually be smiling and having fun.
Plant seeds in different kinds of soil (e.g. potting soil, perlite, sand, etc.)
Measure the height of each plant at certain checkpoints.
We can record our data using measurements (in cm).
Name your Control Variables (What will stay the same for each of the three cups)?
Name the Independent Variable (What is it that is different for each of the three cups)?
Name your Dependent Variable (What is it that you are testing & recording data on?)
What data are you collecting to serve as Evidence to show how plants grow in organic material versus inorganic planting material?
Why is everyone starting with the same three cups? Why do we need to test so many plants?
What sprouts first in a seed: the stem or the root?
How do you know? How do the pictures below help explain your answer for #6?
Why do you think it goes in that order?
They all will be grown in the same place.
nothing, because all of our plants didn't grow, or died.
Whether plants will grow in organic and inorganic materials.
We are measuring the plants growth in centimeters as evidence.
because if we had different cups, we wouldn't know if the different types of cups affected the plant growth in a good or bad way.
Because if the seed is underground, then its needs the root first to help get the water and nutrients from the soil. they help me because in the first one the root comes out, but then in the last one it starts to grow the leaves. The leaves grow from the stem, so the root comes before the stem (more proof).
because the seed needs the root first to help get the water and nutrients from the soil, in order to grow, the plant needs water from the soil. Which is why the root is first.
